BrainFacts.org, a website under the umbrella of the Society for Neuroscience that provides information about the brain and nervous system for the public, has selected our video Neuroscience Meets Magic, filmed in collaboration with Scientific American and theatrical pickpocket and sleight-of-hand artist Apollo Robbins, to be featured as a recommended resource in their educator section.
The views expressed are those of the author(s) and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
