Don’t trust your ears – ASAP Science explains why


ASAP Science explains us what is it about with audio illusions. The McGurk effect makes our brain render sounds we hear into quite other type of sounds based on what we see. this way, only by changing a bit the form of the lips while saying the same words could make us think that the other guy told something totally different.

Also, Tritone Paradox makes us give priority one one of two different pitched tones based on our geography and culture. One other illusion is the Shepard Tone Illusion which makes you hear sounds with a higher and higher pitch when you see a ball jumping up the stairs one step at once. Watching to the same video over and over again will make us hear more high pitched tones each time we look at it, even though the sound is the same.
