This illusion caused by the motion aftereffect. If one looks at a spiral for about seconds or minute and then looks at the stationary squares bellow of the spiral, these squares appear to be rotating opposite slightly. The illusory rotating movement is the motion aftereffect. This particular motion aftereffect is also known as the spiral illusion.
The blue circles are set to move in clockwise direction. When switching from foveal visual system to peripheral visual system (to the right handside of the rotation) it appears the blue circles are more likely to rotate in counter-clockwise direction.
If you see this lady turning in clockwise you are using your right brain. If you see it the other way, you are using left brain. Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.
See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain’s current. BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN.
Experimentation has shown that the two different sides, or hemispheres of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking.
Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking. Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain activities.
Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics, feeling, and creativity..
