The McGurk Effect

The McGurk effect is a phenomenon in which an illusion that conflicts what you are receiving from your senses. In the video below, the actor is constantly saying "Baa", however when his mouth changes to show an "F" sound, we hear "Faa". If you look away from the video, and strictly listen, then you realize that the sound "Baa" is actually being made, regardless of you hearing "Faa" when watching the actors lips. This illusion is interesting because it makes me realize how in-depth our senses work together to process information. It also makes me more informed of how Deaf or Hard of Hearing people are able to read lips as a method of communication, and how important utilizing all of your working senses truly is.
