I am conducting my Honours thesis project under the supervision of Dr. Philippe Chouinard. The focus of my project is on optical illusions, specifically the Shepard tabletop illusion. This is a scarcely studied illusion that provides great opportunities to further our understanding of brain processing. I will be studying this illusion in relation to mental rotation to understand what mechanisms influence susceptibility to the illusion. What I hope to gain from this research is evidence that reflects the subjective nature of cognition.
