Associate Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences Peter Tse ’84 created a new visual illusion that was a finalist in this year’s Illusion of the Year contest. The illusion uses a moving background to create a misleading perception about the location of two flashing red dots.

Read about and see a video of the illusion, which New Scientist TV published in the Friday Illusion series on 5/13/11.
