Optical Illusions Give Your Brain a Workout

Did you know that just by looking at an image, you can exercise your brain? It’s true! In fact, when you try to figure something out in a photo, you are activating several parts of your brain.

When you identify the objects you see, you exercise your occipital lobe. This is the visual processing centre in your brain. Analyzing the spatial relationship between the objects helps you exercise your occipital lobe and parietal lobe. These are responsible for integrating censory information.

When you memorize the objects in the picture, you make use of your short-term memory and this process involves your frontal and parietal lobes. Finally, as you try to spot any differences, you exercise your frontal lobe. This is linked to your capability of planning, paying attention and movement.
