Cafe Scientifique: Now You See It...

Come along to Woody's to Cafe Scientifique and enjoy the discussion over a drink. You don't need to be involved in science or technology to join in – just have an interest and open mind.

Abstract

Everybody likes a good visual illusion. But the range of different types of illusion is very wide, and also depends to some extent on individual eyes, with some illusions based on colour perception, others on spatial resolution and yet others dependent on time. We will look at a range of illusions and discuss how and why these come about.
