Illuminating Folk Illusions with Dr. Brandon Barker and Dr. Claiborne Rice
From Amanda Lueck on February 16th, 2021
Have you ever considered how children's games and perceptual illusions are shared, or wondered how they work? Dr. Brandon Barker and Dr. Claiborne Rice explore folk illusions, blending folklore with cognitive science and conceptual blending theory. The illusions include "The Chills," "The Coat Hanger Bell," and "Floating Arms." Ben Danner extends the conversation to ASMR and auditory perceptual illusions that evoke sensory responses.
