  • Trip without drugs

    From the guy who brought you the 10th dimension, I present:

    Follow the instructions.

    Actually, the effect is very similar to getting hit with tear gas in special forces!

    Oh and make sure you watch the video full screen.

    Yeah this is a great example of the motion aftereffect, where specific neurons in your retina that are sensitive only to motion fatigue (or adapt) to the motion stimulus, where afterward when you look at something stationary, movement is 'seen' despite no movement being present. That video is probably the best example I've seen to induce the effect.

    Showing this to the kids in my psych class next week, actually. ;)

        Psych class? Is that what you call your weekly group shock-therapy treatment?

            I suppose we'd never advance if there weren't people willing put aside silly "moral objections" and experiment on their students. :D
