The cover story of the most recent edition of Science News is a discussion of how neuroscientists (and psychologists) are increasingly turning to magic as a means to understand the processes underlying perception, attention, and even consciousness. Researchers Susana Martinez-Conde and Stephen Macknik from Phoenix's Barrow Neurological Institute (who have penned a number of great review articles on the topic of magic and neuroscience) were interviewed for the article, as was magician and psychologist Gustav Kuhn who was previously cited in my talk, "The Eyes Have It." It's an entertaining read...and open-access to boot!
