Yanny or Laurel: The recording that has divided the internet

descargar el crack de mad riders - Twitter Nobody can agree if this robot says 'Yanny' or 'Laurel' and everyone is arguing about it

We were discussing this in the KHQ Newsroom too and it seems like everyone is split.

An audio snippet with just two syllables has ignited an internet meltdown, dividing social media users into staunchly opposed camps: do you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel?"

The debate over whether an audio track is saying Laurel or Yanny has people across the country and the world involved.

Soon enough, Reddit user Roland Camry (a friend of Castro's ) spotted the same, and then posted it to a channel called r/blackmagicfuckery after which it went viral on the internet.

It turns out that our brains can shift pretty easily between hearing yanny and laurel, just based on how low or high the frequency of the recording gets. "I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer.

Bharath Chandrasekaran, an associate professor at The University of Texas at Austin, said he tested it with 10 people and even they were divided: half went for "Laurel" while the other half went for "Yanny".

Do you hear Laurel? The question of "Yanny or Laurel" is kind of like the audio version of "the dress" meme, which appeared black-and-blue to some and gold-and-white to others. That is crucial in explaining why people are hearing different things.

Disruption of Circadian Rhythm Negatively Impacts Mental Health
For the large study, the researchers examined activity data of 91,105 people from the United Kingdom who were aged between 37 to 73 years.

"I heard "Yanny", says WLBT news anchor Howard Ballou.

Is this going to tear us all apart?

"It's partly because of different frequencies in the audio file", Goetz said.

"But not only that, the brains themselves can be wired very differently to interpret speech", he says.

But Cavanaugh still says no matter what you hear, you're not wrong or right if you hear one over the other.

Ms Feldman said in a video she was fielding multiple interview requests and searching for the original creator.
