Visual Perception and Illusions

Join us for three short talks and a discussion on visual perception. This is a non-technical meetup about eyes and the mind.

Colours, sounds, temperatures, pressures, spaces, times, and so forth, are connected with one another in manifold ways; and with them are associated dispositions of mind, feelings, and volitions. Out of this fabric, that which is relatively more fixed and permanent stands prominently forth, engraves itself on the memory, and expresses itself in language.
