I Break for Science

I heard this interview on yesterday's edition of Talk of the Nation Science Friday on NPR.

Anytime there is talk about how easy it is to fool the brain, they have my attention.

What makes this relevant for this blog is their discussion about creating illusions of time--time misdirection, if you will.  That they have proven in the lab something that magicians have built careers on is in and of itself interesting, but that that same principle might now be used to treat people living with schizophrenia has literally caused my worlds to collide.

So, stop what you're doing and have a listen.
