It Turns Out Some People See the Real World with "Higher FPS"

According to a new scientific study, some people “can see more images per second” and are therefore more sensitive than others to higher image refresh rates.

Scientists from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, revealed in their studies that some people are more sensitive to seeing new images per second. Contrary to the frequently expressed urban legend that “The human eye does not see more than 60 FPS anyway”, it has been proven once again that the human eye can have higher FPS.

88 people aged between 18 and 35 participated in the research. A system called CFF (Critical Flicker Fusion) was used to measure activity in parts of the brain called “visual temporal resolution” that allow people to separate visual signals. In this system, participants actually see a flashing light, but because this process occurs so quickly, the light almost never appears to turn off.

The 60 FPS legend became history again

While some of the participants stated that the light did not blink at all, others managed to detect more than 35 renewals. Some participants managed to find the FPS of the light more than 60. In this case, it revealed that the human eye can see more than 60 FPS, and that some people are indeed more sensitive to higher screen refresh rates and higher FPS.

Another point that stood out in the research was that the difference between men and women in this field was so low as to be negligible. According to researchers, one gender is no better than the other in this regard.
