Keep your eyes focused on the flashing green dot in the video below and before you know it, the yellow dots surrounding the green dot will disappear—but not really.
According to The Telegraph, this visual phenomenon is known as motion-induced blindness, or MIB.
Basically, focusing on the flashing green dot forces your brain to focus only on the moving grid and the flashing green dot, stationery yellow dots fade away and a ‘blind spot’ is created. But the minute you shift your attention back to the yellow dots, they reappear. The truth is, they never left the image.
Give it a try below…it is rather impressive!
