2. Afterimage

'Afterimage' is the term describes the continuation of a visual sensation after removal of the stimulus.


Explanation:

Afterimage is a visual illusion in which retinal impressions persist after the removal of a stimulus, believed to be caused by the continued activation of the visual system.

The afterimage may be positive, corresponding in colour or brightness to the original image, or negative, being less bright or of colours complementary to the original.
