Fact Check: Post claiming that an image created by a Japanese Neurologist determines the state of mind is fake

A viral image on social media claims that it has been created by a Japanese neurologist to check a person’s level of stress. Vishvas News investigated and found that neither the image has been created by a Japanese neurologist nor it checks a person’s level of stress. The viral claim is false.

Claim

An image shared on Facebook by a user named Naveen Jain reads: “This is a still image created by a Japanese Neurologist, Yamamoto. As per the Neurologist, if you find it as a still image, you are healthy, if the image appears to be shaky, you are a little stressed or you have not got a sound sleep during night,  if you find the image circulating, then you are stressed and you need some rest, if you find the image moving fast, you are highly stressed and you need treatment.”

Investigation

Vishvas News started its investigation by searching about the viral claim on social media. The post has been shared by many users on Facebook.

Not only on Facebook, but the post is also widely circulated on Twitter as well.

We performed Google reverse image search of the viral photo and found the same photo on Shutterstock, a stock photography company.

The image in the Shutterstock was posted under the account named “Guten Tag Vector”.

Vishvas News checked the profile of the account and found the twitter profile of the user who posted the image.

Using Twitter Advanced Search, we found the name of the user and his background. The user was Yurii Perepadia.

We also found the same image on his Twitter account with a time-stamp of September 27, 2016:

Vishvas News searched his profile on Facebook as well.

Through Facebook Messenger, we contacted him and asked about the viral image. He said he is the creator of the image shown in the viral post. He created the image in 2016.

So, it was clear that the viral image of illusion was created by Yurii Perepadia, who is a graphic designer from Ukraine and not by any Japanese Neurologist.

The viral post also claimed that the illusion shown in the viral image determines the state of mind.

Vishvas News spoke to Dr. Esha Mehta, who is a Psychologist. She said: “Illusions are meant to trick people. This image has nothing to do with the state of mind or to determine the stress levels. The claim is completely false.”

Conclusion

The post claiming that the image created by a Japanese neurologist checks a person’s level of stress is fake. The post is actually created by Yurii Perepadia, who is a graphic designer from Ukraine. And, it does not determine the state of mind or levels of stress.
