Calm or angry face Illusion

Calm or angry face
Do you remember the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Dr Jekyll, the famous scientist, is not all he seems, and the other side of his character - Mr Hyde - is, you will recall, a distinctly nasty piece of work.

Continuing the idea of the two sides of the human character, have a look at the picture above. On the left is Dr Angry, and on the right is Mr Calm.

Now, back away from your computer screen. This effect will work at different distances for different people, but you should see the two characters swap over...! As you come closer to the screen again, they revert to their original characters. Spooky or what!

As optical illusions go, we think this is pretty impressive. A short explanation goes something like this. When we look at an object, we can normally see both fine detail and coarse detail. However when we are close, the fine detail will dominate, and when we are further away, we lose the fine detail, and see more of the coarse detail.

Both of the faces you see above are hybrids - each face is actually a combination of two faces. The left hand face shows an angry man in fine detail, but within the picture there is also coarse detail of the calm face. Move away, and you lose the fine (angry) detail, and just see the coarse (calm) detail.

The right hand face shows the calm face in fine detail, and the angry face in coarse detail.

Even babies can have optical illusions

Five-month-old Samuel doesn't seem at all worried about the large plaster covering his right eye. He gurgles contentedly and tugs inquisitively at the white curtain in front of his nose, until it is lifted up by an invisible force. Now Samuel is looking at a chessboard which is drawn in such a way that it seems to be receding into the distance away from him.

From this background two bright orange hippos are staring at him; Samuel looks back at them with interest. He tries to grab hold of the hippo which is located a little lower down than the left-hand hippo; it squeaks and the curtain falls. When it goes up a few seconds later, two pelicans have taken over from the hippos. This time the left-hand pelican is lower down. Samuel reaches out for the bright red beak, there is a squeak and the curtain falls. After two dozen repetitions a voice in the background says, 'Thank you, that'll be all,' thereby ending Samuel's guest appearance at the University of Bonn's Institute of Psychology.

'What we are investigating here is at what point babies can begin to decipher visual data about perspective,' says Laura Hemker, who is doing her PhD at the Institute. The problem is that even the brightest baby cannot yet say, at the age of five months, what it can see. For this reason the researchers on Dr. Michael Kavšek's team had to think up a trick enabling them to detect the perceptive faculties of their little guinea pigs. 'If you offer a baby two toys, it usually goes for the nearest one,' Laura Hemker explains. 'We make use of this fact for our experiment.' The PhD student put 20 seven-month-old babies and 20 five-month-old babies in front of the chessboard background. Due to the perspective figures which are fixed higher up and near the horizon appear further away than rubber toys which are a little lower down – although this is only the case if the observer covers over one eye. Otherwise the stereoscopic data provided by a pair of eyes cancel out the effect of perspective faked by the chessboard. 'This is precisely what we observe with our babies,' adds Julia Niehl, one of the students assisting in the project. 'If they can use both eyes they choose one of the two toys at random. However, when we cover over one eye, they more often go for the toy located lower down which appears closer because of the data on perspective contained in the background image.'

At any rate, 19 of the 20 seven-month-old babies went for the lower one rather than the higher one significantly more frequently when they could only use one eye. In eight out of ten cases they first tried to touch the toy that seemed nearer. However, if they were allowed to use both eyes, the location of the toys had no effect on the toys selected.

Even in the case of the five-month-old babies it was 16 out of 20 who reacted to data on perspective – which came as a surprise to the psychologists, as previously most experts had assumed that babies did not acquire this ability until about the age of seven months – 'and that this took place, so to speak, from one day to the next, almost as if someone had flicked a switch,' says Dr. Kavšek, who heads this study on perception. 'Our findings, however, seem to point to a continuous process of development: babies become aware of depth-of-field data at a very early age; the older they are, the less obvious the signals need to be and the better it works.'

Probably the perception of perspective kicks in even earlier. However, to test this hypothesis the psychologists would have to change the way their experiment is set up: most babies cannot reach out for something specific until they are four or five months old.
