A team of scientists has uncovered a neurological synergy that occurs in visual adaptation, a phenomenon in which perception is altered by prolonged exposure to a stimulus. In the facial expression adaptation, after viewing a face with a beaming smile, faces with a neutral expression appear sad, while viewing a sad face causes a neutral face to appear happy. In newly published work, researchers focused on facial expression aftereffect—a type of optical illusion. Human participants viewed facial images of a single person whose expressions spanned from happy to sad, as shown here, then reported the expression. The findings of the new study, which appear in the Journal of Vision , challenge a common assumption that adaptation aftereffects are purely sensory.

Rather than delivering information from our eyes in nearly raw form as a camera would, the brain tries to determine what is actually out there — what are the shapes and the objects in the scene?
