This optical illusion of relative size perception is named after German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus. This illusion consists in misperceiving the size of circles. In this version, as shown in the picture, two circles of identical size are placed close to each other. One is surrounded by large circles while the other is surrounded by small ones. The central circle on the right then appears bigger than the left central circle.
This triangle illusion is named after the Italian psychologist Gaetano Kanizsa. To prove that people experience reality not as it really is but as it is seen through special filters called mental models, he drew a series of geometrical figures giving an impression that there is a bright white triangle in the center. However, this triangle doesn’t really exist at all.
It’s a classic optical illusion named after Johann Poggendorff, a German physicist. A scientist discovered it in the picture received from F. Zöllner, a famous astronomer. This illusion shows that in the example above, the black line on the left appears to be a continuation of the blue line. In actuality, the black and red lines match up. Interestingly, this optical effect hasn’t been explained so far.
Hermann grid illusion
Ludimar Hermann discovered this optical effect in 1870 while reading a book on sound by John Tyndall. In the Hermann grid illusion, the "ghostlike" gray spots appear at the intersections of white (or light colored) lines on a black background. These spots disappear when one looks directly at an intersection.
