Leila Falls, a student at the City University of New York, and a freelance reporter for NYCity NewsService, recently reviewed our research on neuromagic. She tested out our findings in a new video featuring the inimitable Joshua Jay, a NYC-based magician and bestselling author on magic, who performs all over the world. Fall’s project produced a 6-and-a-half minute video that is one of the finest summary’s of the state of the art available. Beware! The video reveals magic secrets… so don’t watch unless you want to know how your mind gets blown by magicians. Falls did such a great job, Scientific American picked it up and showcased it here.

The video packs in interviews by yours truly and Susana Martinez-Conde, Roger Dreyer of Fantasma Magic, and Christopher Fecarotta (a pediatric ophthalmologist from our home research institute, SUNY Downstate Medical Center), and appearances by Jeremy The Magician, Phil The Magic Man, and Magick Balay from Tannen’s Magic.
