Full event details

We all know that our eyes can sometimes fool us, things are not always what they seem, and our perceptions of the world are not always accurate. This lecture will demonstrate various perceptual and visual illusions and explain the psychology behind them. The implications of this for practical areas such as eyewitness testimony, film and visual effects, and magic will be explored. At the end of the session, you will have the opportunity to take part in a practical demonstration surrounding the phenomenon of phantom limb syndrome.

 

The Discover Programme consists of subject-specific lectures and workshops aimed at Year 12 or Year 1 college students, delivered by academics that teach at the University. 

These sessions are designed to both complement the curriculum and introduce new subject areas.
