Seing Red? Not Possible...!!

An image shared on Twitter by Japanese 'experimental psychologist' and Professor of Psychology, Akiyoshi Kitaoka, appears to show a bunch of red strawberries on a tart - and seems to be filtered with a blue hue.

But in reality, there is not a single red pixel in the picture.

'Illusion of strawberry by the two-color method. Although this image are [sic] all made of the pixels of the cyan (blue-green), strawberries appear red,' Prof Kitaoka wrote on Twitter.

 'Strawberries appear to be reddish, though the pixels are not.' Expert on visual perception from the National Eye Institute, Bevil Conway, described the baffling image as an example of the brain 'colour correcting the world' when it is filtered through a different light.
