The human brain is very special and incredibly powerful. It can solve math equations, write symphonies, and read books. In fact, the brain is so amazing that it has the ability to think about thinking. No other living creatures' brain can do that!

But the brain can be fooled. It is constantly being bombarded with information from the world around us. So it sometimes takes shortcuts to interpret this flow of information.

Trip up your brain with this experiment!
