Another Internet Outbreak: Is It Yanny Or Laurel?

May 17th, 2018   admin   Uncategorized Tags: , ,

This year’s version of the black and blue or to some white and gold dress. Someone came out with a voice recording, and people can’t seem to decipher if they are saying “Yanny” or “Laurel” I mean in my opinion it’s pretty obvious that they’re saying “Yanny” but somehow it became public and is now trending all over social media. Apparently according to scientists whether you hear “Yanny” or “laurel” depends on whether you’re attending to lower or higher frequencies of sound. Some start by saying they hear “Yanny” and then they hear the same video elsewhere and hear “laurel” and that can vary on the quality of the speaker you’re hearing it from, your sensitivity to hearing, and the audio-processing regions of your brain. But experiments found that once someone makes a decision on whether they hear “Yanny” or “laurel”, or see the dress as black and blue or white and gold it is very hard for them to change their perception on that. Even if they try to listen to it differently, or look at it from another point of view, it’s almost as if our brains won’t let us see or hear past what we originally thought.
