  • New research led by the University of Melbourne found out that people could reliably sense that a change has occurred without being able to visually identify the change.
  • The research design involved presenting observers with a pair of human photographs for a short period of time, in some of which there would be minor difference, and asking:

1) if there is a change, mostly answered correctly

2) what the change was (from a number of alternatives), which the observers often couldn’t answer

  • According to the findings, the results can be explained without invoking an extrasensory mechanism.
