A Study of Optical Illusions

"A picture is worth a thousand words."or "Seeing is believing."  Sometimes our eyes deceive us, and what we see is only what our brain expects us to see. Optical illusions are amusing, but they also teach us a lot about how our brain works in conjunction with our eyes to create a vision.
