Vision and Optical Illusions by Dr. Toshi Miyatsu, Research Scientist, IHMC

December 16, 2023

In December we learned about vision and optical illusions, with an emphasis on the neuroscience of how the eyes and the brain work together to see and understand things. Hands-on activities centered on experiencing different types of optical illusions and learning which parts of the brain cause the illusion. The students were very engaged, asking many insightful questions and sharing their knowledge, and they each created their own optical illusion based on a 3D hand drawing.
