Tomorrow (Tue 16th Dec at 8 am PST) the journal PeerJ will host a live ‘Ask Me Anything’ session with us, and our collaborator Hector Rieiro (a PhD candidate in the Macknik Lab). We’ll be accepting questions about our recent study on Penn & Teller’s 'cups and balls' illusion, filmed in their theater in Las Vegas. You can download the article for free.
If you want to learn how this trick hacks your brain, or if you are just curious about visual neuroscience in general, then visit us here and leave your questions at any time—before, during, and after tomorrow’s event—and get all your questions answered by us!
