Is your brain lying to you?
16 August 2018 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Our brains learn about the outside world through our senses. But our senses aren’t always to be trusted. Ever wondered why the wheels on cars sometimes appear to spin backwards? Or why the internet can’t seem to agree on what colour ‘The Dress’ is? If you’ve ever wondered why we are so susceptible to visual illusions, and what is actually happening in our brains when we view them, come along to this talk to find out for yourself.
Brian Oakley from Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute will talk about his recent research on the brain at a free talk at the Library during National Science Week 2018.
