So your way to make people not look away from the black dot is to have red writing flash up on the picture away from the black dot?

Not clever stuff OP

I looked at the comments hoping someone would have explained already, but I was disappointed. Does someone care to explain this to me?

look up the opponent process theory

Stimulation fatigue from the photoreceptors in your eye. Essentially, the photoreceptors in the eye contain iodopsins (color pigments) that respond to RGB. These cells become excited to turn visible light into electrochemical signals to your brain. Prolonged exposure to the same color causes the photoreceptors to become desensitized to the specific color as the pigments become excited and saturated so when you look at a white image, you see the complimentary color instead (ie: the white with the original color subtracted out).

Who else could switch back?
User avatar #17 to #13 - JariWeis (03/14/2013) [-]
Only by looking off-centre.
User avatar #15 to #13 - DrBobsPatient (03/14/2013) [-]
that's not good if it switches back while you're still staring at the center lol

It's the Opponent Process Theory: your fovea (in retina) contains cones with percieve 2 colors each (red-green, blue-yellow, black-white), and when exposed to one of those colors, the cones' sensitivity to that color decreases. Thereafter, if the color shown is taken away, the opposite (opponent) color for that specific cone shows up.
