Can You Trust Your Ears? (Audio Illusions)

Miscellaneous 6 November 2014 0 Comments

Today’s post is a little different than all of the other posts on An Optical Illusion.  Instead of featuring something that will trick your eyes, this video features several examples of audio illusions that will play tricks on your ears.  Explained in detail are the McGurk Effect, the Tritone Paradox, and the Shepard Tone Illusion.  The latter is named after psychologist Roger Shepard, the creator of other great visual illusions including the Impossible Elephant and Getting Down to Business.
