Sleights of mind : what the neuroscience of magic reveals about our everyday deceptions by Stephen L Macknik( Book )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Macknik and Susana Martinez-Conde, the founders of the new discipline of neuromagic, have convinced some of the world's greatest magicians to allow scientists to study their techniques for tricking the brain. This book is the result of the authors' yearlong, world-wide exploration of magic and how its principles apply to our behavior. Magic tricks fool us because humans have hardwired processes of attention and awareness that are hackable--a good magician uses your mind's own intrinsic properties against you. Now magic can reveal how our brains work in everyday situations. For instance, if you've ever bought an expensive item you'd sworn you'd never buy, the salesperson was probably a master at creating the "illusion of choice," a core technique of magic. The implications of neuromagic go beyond illuminating our behavior; early research points to new approaches for everything from the diagnosis of autism to marketing techniques and education.--From publisher description
Visual Perception by European Conference on Visual Perception( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a collection of articles reflecting state-of-the-art research in visual perception, specifically concentrating on neural correlates of perception. Each section addresses one of the main topics in vision research today. Volume 1 Fundamentals of Vision: Low and Mid-Level Processes in Perception covers topics from receptive field analyses to shape perception and eye movements. A variety of methodological approaches are represented, including single-neuron recordings, fMRI and optical imaging, psychophysics, eye movement characterization and computational modelling. The contributions will provide the reader with a valuable perspective on the current status of vision research, and more importantly, with critical insight into future research directions and the discoveries yet to come.· Provides a detailed breakdown of the neural and psychophysical bases of Perception · Presents never-before-published original discoveries · Includes multiple full-color illustrations

Ceci n'est pas un lapin : quand les neurosciences dévoilent les secrets des magiciens qui bernent notre cerveau by Stephen L Macknik( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lorsque deux chercheurs en neurosciences demandent à certains des plus grands magiciens de la planète de leur révéler les secrets de leurs spectacles, on pourrait s'attendre à ce qu'aucun lapin ne sorte finalement du chapeau... Mais Stephen Macknik et Susana Martinez-Conde, eux-mêmes magiciens, ont réussi ce tour ! Ils ont persuadé James Randi, alias "Randi le stupéf!ant", Apollo Robbins, le meilleur pickpocket du monde, et bien d'autres magiciens de leur expliquer les techniques qu'ils emploient pour tromper les sens de leur auditoire. Illusions d'optiques, illusions cognitives, mémorielles ou multi sensorielles, tout est bon pour ces professionnels de la manipulation. Mais la magie ne marche que parce que les humains ont des processus mentaux d'attention et de conscience qui peuvent être "piratés". Un bon magicien ne fait ainsi que retourner à son profit le fonctionnement même de notre cerveau, dans une forme de judo de l'esprit... Dans cet amusant et instructif voyage aux confins de notre perception, vous découvrirez enfin les vrais trucs des magiciens professionnels - à moins que vous ne préfériez zapper ces "spoilers"... Mais comprendre la magie, c'est aussi comprendre comment notre cerveau est manipulé dans toutes sortes de situations, publicité, marketing, négociations commerciales et autres interactions entre humains, magiciens ou non.

Shows how science is constructing a wiring diagram of the visual path, shows about the structure of receptors in the retina, through the peanut-size clusters of cells known as the lateral geniculate bodies, to the striate cortex-- the first of many higher areas devoted to vision and the part of the brain that is now best understood. Introduces the remarkable geometric patterns that result from the surprising tendency of cells with related functions to be organized in sheets, columns, blobs, and stripes
