Scientists at Harvard have several videos that demonstrate a visual effect called "silencing"
In the first video you see a number of dots in a roughly doughnut shaped pattern. The dots change color, which is very obvious. But when the pattern rotates, the movement of the dots greatly diminishes (i.e. "silences") our ability to perceive the color changes. This same movements silences changes in object brightness, shape, and size.
We all mostly already knew this, but it's always interesting to discover that this is effectively a hardwired part of the system.
