Physiological Illusions

Physiological illusions, such as the afterimages following bright lights, or viewing stimuli of alternating patterns are presumed to be the effects on the eyes or brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type – brightness, tilt, color, movement, and so on. Theory suggests that stimuli have individual neural paths at various stages of visual processing, and that repetitive stimulation may causes a physiological imbalance that alters perception.
