The human brain is the most complex organ of any species, but that doesn't mean it can't be easily tricked.

In the following video, you'll be asked to stare at the black dot in the center of a photo of a castle. If you keep staring at the dot after the false color image has gone away, and the black-and-white photo returns, you'll be surprised to see the castle in full color (even though it isn't)!
