This week, the MIRAGE lab (Poppy, Katie, Ellen, Natasha, Hayley and Kristy) will be collecting data from hundreds of children at The University of Nottingham’s Summer Scientist Week – an annual event organised by researchers from the School of Psychology. We will be running lots of experiments using variations of our two hands, disappearing hand and finger stretching illusions. It’s hard work, but worth it!
Next week (Thursday and Friday) you will find some of us at Nottingham Contemporary. Details to follow!
