Default Poll: A Brain Teaser

What color do you see in this dress? I see blue and black.

What your brain really sees when it looks at ‘the dress’: A neuroscientist explains

By James Rogers
Published February 27, 2015FoxNews.com


What colors do you see? (Tumblr/user swiked)

It’s the question on everyone’s lips – just what color is that dress? White and gold or blue and black? Well, we know what Kim Kardashian thinks. Now it’s science’s turn to enter the Internet battle raging over the actual color of a 21-year old Scottish woman’s dress.
So, why do people see different colors in the dress?
Bevil Conway, associate professor of neuroscience at Wellesley College, told FoxNews.com that the dress plays on core aspects of brain science.
“This dress was very carefully crafted, either by accident or design, for a combination of colors that doesn’t resolve unambiguously,” he said.
Our brains and visual systems don’t want to deal with ambiguity and uncertainty in what they are seeing, according to Conway, so our brains do backflips to “make it sensible.”

White and Gold here, too.. Is this one of those "Screws with the TV color" .. ?? .. combos, which drive people batty?

I don't know.. Being psychoanalyzed by Kim Kardashian's dress.. Holy Cow, what rabbit hole will we travel down next? .. ..

I might have to stand on my head and have some dude kick me in the ear to see black and blue.. White and gold no matter how I look at the thing..

Quickly showed this to the Wife...

"What Color is that dress?" I says..
"Black and Blue" says, she..

Typical ... But she don't get a vote, 'cause she don't ride ..

My wife said the same thing, Black and Blue. I think the dress is white and gold. The white is a cool white (read bluish end of the spectrum). I definitely don't see any thing black....
