I am currently doing my Honours in Psychology with Philippe. We are going to be looking at the Poggendorff illusion and in particular, how attention and orientation processing contribute to the overall perceptual experience of the illusion. I find this area interesting because while on the surface, visual illusions seem to be a simple curiosity, they are actually fascinating as they also allow us a valuable method in investigating the various cortical processes which underlie their production. I am looking forward to seeing how our experiment pans out.
