As kids we get taught about the 5 senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. They are each perceived by a different part of the body, i.e. sight with eyes and hearing with ears. But what if what we see clashes with what we hear, can we really hear with our eyes?
This short video is a really interesting view over an aspect of psychoacoustics looking into this. What makes this effect even better is that even when you know what’s happening, you can’t stop your brain from interpreting it as different.
Maybe we should stop relying on our eyes so much and start hearing with our ears, besides that was what we have them for!
