Topic 3 Connection


a) I chose 3 illusions/games that may try to trick my brain and my subjects’ brains for my topic 3 connection. The three games/illusions I chose were very interesting, but very challenging.
The first illusion I chose was “Are her eyes the same color”. This illusion was asking me to decide if I could determine if the eyes on a woman, in the picture, were the same. Half the picture was black and white, while the other side of the picture was highlighted with red. Below the picture was a bar that I had to drag a computer mouse over to see the image in another way that would reveal the answer. The answer was that the woman did have the same color eyes.
The second game I chose was “Penmen January Challenge”. The object of this game was to identify the two pictures of mice that were exactly the same through numbers 1-21. This game was testing if my eyes and brain could work together to connect the two identical mice out of 1-21. The answer was 7 and 12.
The third illusion I chose was “Spinning Dancer”. This illusion was asking me to decide which way the dancer was spinning. The answer was that the dancer was moving both ways.
Overall, the games/illusions were very difficult. I believe that the game “Penmen January Challenge” was my favorite.

b) The following data table shows the results of the subjects and I:
Are her eyes the same color?
I was incorrect. I thought the woman’s eyes were different colors. However, they were the same.
Subject 1 was incorrect. He believed the woman’s eyes were different colors.
Subject 2 was incorrect. She believed the woman’s eyes were different colors.
Penmen January Challenge
I was correct because I identified the that mouse 7 and mouse 12 were the same.
Subject 1 hesitated to find the identical mice, but he did identify the two mice ( 7 and 12) to be the same.
Subject 2 was incorrect because she believed mice 4 and 9 were the same. However, she answered very quickly.
Spinning Dancer
I was incorrect because I thought the dancer was spinning to the right. However, the dancer can be seen to spin both ways.
Subject 1 was incorrect. Subject 1 said that the dancer was spinning to the right.
Subject two was incorrect because she believed that the dancer was spinning to the left.

c)
I believe I got the results I did for “Are her eyes the same color?” because my brain processed the different color over one side of the image faster than it processed the entire image. My sight and brain was quickly tricked because of the black and white on one side of the picture. Also, I believe I got the results I did for “Penmen January Challenge” because I took my time. Therefore, I could look at each mouse individually and choose the mouse that matched him. Lastly,I believe I got the answers I did for “Spinning Dancer” because my eyes first observed the dancer moving to the right. Also, my brain is use to things on the right side I believe because I’m actually blind in my left eye
