Do My Eyes Deceive Me? The Science of How Humans See the World
It is estimated that humans get 80% of their information about the world through their eyes and so the science of vision has fascinated us for centuries. Human vision performs a remarkable feat; it glimpses a 3-D world, represents it as 2-D on the eye, and then uses the brain to reconstruct it as a 3-D perception.
Do My Eyes Deceive Me? By Dr. Shatté
In this highly energetic and interactive session, Dr. Shatté takes you on a whirlwind tour of the journey from eye to brain, using the classic visual illusions to illustrate what we know about how we make sense of our world.

Join us as we unpack how humans see the world.
