For those of you who are in Israel today or tomorrow, come join us at The Gonda Center for free presentations on illusions and visual perception. We spoke last night about our book Sleights of Mind to attendees interested in magic. Tonight’s lecture (Sept. 16, 2013) will be about how illusions work in the brain, centering on our upcoming book Champions of Illusion (7pm, register here if you would like to attend). Tomorrow night we will speak about our scientific research on eye movements, which are Windows on the Mind. Come join us!
