Science response of What colors are this dress?
|The Internet almost broke after a heated debated over... the color of a dress. Are you Team White and Gold or Team Blue and Black?|
The debate that began several days on the Internet is associated by explanations and scientific facts. Realistically the dress is blue with black, but some people cannot see it as well.
The debate about the color of a dress set on sale at a British website has caused turmoil on the Internet, but scientists who study the brain are ready to give an explanation.
In this case, different perception occurs because the image is over-exposed, say scientists.
According to a professor of brain science and conjunctiva at Richester University, the change may be due to the different variations of the number of photoreceptors in retina, called cones, which perceive blue color. The human eye has about 6 million cones sensitive to the colors green, red or blue. Signals go from the cone in the brain, which interprets them as color.
"It's interesting! When it comes to colors, the blue is stranger. In the eyes we have less blue cones, compared with cones to other colors. If you have more blue cones, you will see it blue. If you have fewer such, you will see it as white. "
Joseph Toscano, assistant professor at Villanova University in the Department of Psychology and an expert in the field of illusions, said the image appears to be a type of reversible figure, or a figure that is interpreted in two ways, depending on various factors.
Another theory involves the perception of colors, writes Annabel. People can perceive the color in different ways, if the ambient light signals are missing.
