Teller Reveals His Secrets

I am totally fascinated by Penn and Teller. Love this take on the rules of magic.

I’m all for helping science. But after I share what I know, my neuroscientist friends thank me by showing me eye-tracking and MRI equipment, and promising that someday such machinery will help make me a better magician.


I have my doubts. Neuroscientists are novices at deception. Magicians have done controlled testing in human perception for thousands of years.
