  10. 10. Physiological illusions: effects on the eyes and the brain of excessive stimulation (brightness, inclination, colour).
  11. 11. Cognitive illusions: eye and the brain make interferences in an unconscious way. </li></ul> <br />
  12. 12. Physiological illusions<br /><ul><li> Alterations in perception caused by structural or functional own perception system peculiarities.
  13. 13. The films, as the majority of illusions, are based on this kind of illusion. </li></li></ul><li>Physiological illusions (cont.)<br /><ul><li> The Hermann Grid illusion and the Mach bands are two well-known physiological illusions, explained from Biology.</li></ul>Notice the dark band that appears immediately to the right and the light band that appears immediately to the left of the middle strip.<br />Dark blobs appear at the intersections.<br />
