Visual Phenomena & Optic Illusions

A list of the most common visual phenomena and optic/visual illusions, commonly studied in perception. Most of these effects have their basis in the visual pathway, rather than in the optics of the eye. Emphasis on this site is on interactivity and understanding of the visual mechanisms involved. By Michael Bach of Universitäts-Augenklinik Freiburg.
