Event Summary:

Magic, lies and deception: Magic is one of the oldest art forms, and for thousands of years magicians have amazed people with their astonishing illusions. Magicians have developed very clever psychological tricks that exploit limitations in your cognition.

Full Event Details:

In the first talk, Dr. Gustav Kuhn will explore some of surprising ways in which magicians deceive you, and you will learn about the clever tricks they play on your brain.

In the second talk Dr. Gordon Wright will explore our ability to detect lies and deception. Researchers suggest that some people – so-called “Lie Wizards” – are particularly skilled at spotting lies. But for those of us who aren’t bestowed with magical powers of lie detection, how can we really detect when we are being lied to? How do we train police to detect lies in investigative interviews?
