People hear “bummage” when you look at silent SFII. What’s going on?

In the beginning of December the British academic Lisa Debrun posted on Twitter SFII Bouncing backbone transmission line. Debrun asked, does anyone know why some hear sounds when I look at this GIF. Many Twitter users really said what you hear “bucause” sound.

Does anyone in visual perception know why you can hear this gif?

Debrun, conducted a survey among its subscribers. 70% of respondents said that they heard a “thundering sound”, 18% felt nothing, 3% have experienced something else, and the rest wanted to know the result.

Employees of “Medusa” watching SFII, agreed that some sounds truly felt, but they would not say that hear them.

As explained by the candidate of psychological Sciences from city University London Christopher Lassnig, people “hear” SFII because of synesthesia — a neurological phenomenon in which irritation of one sense evokes a response in another sense. “Bummage” that is felt in the head, it’s a listening response to visual stimulus — SFII.

According to statistics, kinesthetic-auditory synesthesia can experience up to 20% of people. As noted, Lassnig, this is because almost all movements are associated with sounds. Other types of synesthesia are less common — from 2 to 4%. For example, the composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov combined sounds and colors — it’s called chromesthesia.
