Left brain, right brain  
A colleague at the U showed this to me a few weeks ago. When you click on this link, you'll see an image of a spinning girl. Which way does she appear to be turning? Clockwise or counterclockwise? If you keep looking at her long enough, she may change directions. It may also be that a person or group of people viewing her simultaneously will see her spinning in different directions. Check it out.

Left brain or right brain?

The claim is that those who see her spinning clockwise are processing the image with the right hemisphere of the brain, while those who see her spinning counterclockwise are using their left brain.

I found that via facebook and have been amused by it for the past week or so. At first it was almost impossible for me to see anything other than what I saw first (counterclockwise), but now I can make it change directions at will.

Left and right
I love the user pic...

Same here with the left and right brain animation-test, only I could only see her spinning clockwise at first. I find that if I look at the image in my peripheral vision, I can change the direction pretty much at will now and can sometimes make her go left-then-right in rapid succession without making an entire revolution in either direction.

The previous comment was from me.
