It was a really nice little look at how the brain works in certain situations. Great for the kids to watch too and the magic portion was a lot of fun, especially when they do the slight of hand tricks with the clear glasses so you can see exactly what is going on.

Enjoyed this DVD a lot, especially the incorporation of magic as a subject to explore in relation to how the brain processes what we see.
