Scientists have found that certain individuals can see more images per second than others. Some test subjects were able to detect more than sixty light signals per second, while others struggled to detect 35 light signals per second.

The study, which took place at Trinity College in Dublin, examined whether a difference could be observed in the visual temporal resolution of 88 test subjects. This is the ability of an individual’s visual system to detect rapid changes in light intensity in the environment. The scientists used this critical flicker fusion: a test method in which a light signal is transmitted to an individual at a very high frequency at fixed intervals to determine at what frequency the light signal can no longer be detected.

The results show that ‘significant’ differences were observed among the test subjects. According to The Guardian, some test subjects had difficulty detecting 35 light signals per second, while other test subjects had no trouble detecting more than 60 light signals per second. Clinton Haarlem, one of the scientists behind the research, told the British newspaper that it is thought that individuals who can perceive more light signals per second also receive more visual information. The man suspects that athletes and professional gamers have a higher visual temporal resolution can have. The research shows that there are no significant differences between men and women.
