S3470: The Neuroscience of Optical Illusions in Splash Fall 2018 (Oct. 27, 2018)
Have you ever wondered about what makes optical illusions possible? In this course, we'll talk about a few common optical illusions and the neuroscience that makes them possible. You'll understand just what goes on in our brain when we look at optical illusions, and also how optical illusions can help us understand how the brain normally operates. We will tackle concepts like color afterimages and inattentional blindness, among others. No prior knowledge of neuroscience is required, but an interest in how the brain works is recommended!
