A trick of the eye

Run time: 14:00 – 15:00, 16:00 – 17:00, 18:00 – 19:00
We can often take our sight for granted, but there’s much more to vision than meets the eye. Constructing such a neat little image of our consciousness is the result of a complex activity throughout both our brain and eyes. 
Better understanding the processes our eyes go through to construct this image is incredibly important and can have applications in many fields of research. From revealing why we buy what we buy, to unlocking key information about a range of conditions from dyslexia to Parkinson’s. 
Join Mark Harwood and his team from the University of East London for a series of interactive demonstrations, revealing the various tricks that our eyes, and their movements, play on us to construct the world around us.
