Scientists have found why a ‘visual ear’ phenomenon lets some human being ‘hear’ silent gif images such as the well known ‘skipping pylon’ animation.

A new study has actually argued the exceptional ‘synaesthesia-prefer effect’ is caused by interference between areas of the brain responsible for processing sight and sound.

Generally, these 2 parts of our brains perform not work together.

But they might ‘allisonbrookephotography.comoperate’ in people that are able to hear silent imperiods thanks to a ‘visually-evoked auditory response’, which is also well-known as VEAR or visual ear.
