The brain is a very powerful tool and the guys at Mind Lab http://jvsc.jst.go.jp/find/mindlab/english/index.html know this for sure. Well known optical illusions are available for users to explore their power of perception and more.
The “Mind Lab” has just four but powerful themed sessions. Each of them has one introductory movie followed by four more content sessions known as “trials”. For those seeing “Mind Lab” for the first time, you are advised to first of all watch the introductory video in session one before proceeding through the order trials in an orderly fashion; but if you insist, you may decide to jump straight to any of the four introductory movies or 16 trials using the site map.
The main name “Mind Lab” given to the site is coined out and explained as “laboratory of the mind”. With the 16 trials available to you, you will experience illusions and visual phenomena that are normally used when carrying out psychological experiments. These illusions and phenomena may make you doubt your own eyes and lead you towards exploring the mysteries of your perception.
Later on, you will discover how true it is that the brain unconsciously interprets all information arriving from the outside world which constitutes our visual word.
