Magicology

Scientific American is all about the intersection of magic tricks and neuroscience this month. I’m sure some of you may know about it already, but I thinks it’s too interesting to not post about. I found it on Twitter (thank you, @sciam_live):

SciAm video \”Neuroscience Meets Magic\”

I think it’s more than worth the 11 minutes. New Scientist did an article on this, too: http://www.mindpowernews.com/Magicology.htm

About szubryd

I come alive when I talk about science. Whether I'm asking about marine ecology or writing about endocrine-disrupting chemicals, I light up. I've found myself vehemently defending evolutionary theory from inside a bathroom stall, sitting at a bar holding the interest of self-proclaimed potheads with an explanation of endogenous cannabanoid receptors, and discussing the causes of eutrophication in streams on a second date (he was a keeper, by the way). It took an astute college mentor and the challenge of reporting about bisphenol A to point me toward science writing as a career. I had a hard time believing I could make a living doing something so interesting, so much more rewarding than listening to marketers pitch the environmental benefits of their latest drain cleaner—the one with "Toxic" on the label. What could be better?
