Seeing Through Illusions

Richard Gregory

Renowned scientist Richard Gregory here explores what visual illusions can tell us about how our brains perceive the world. Looking at optical tricks and many other extraordinary phenomena, Gregory explains how scientists use these anomalies to peel back the normal processes of perception, and to reveal how the brain performs the remarkable feat of representing the real world. An insightful state-of-the-art tour of perception and the brain, this book will enthrall everyone interested in the borderland where the inner and the outer world meet.
