Interview Help with Optical Illusions

Postby Rainhawk » Sun Dec 07, 2003 6:09 pm

To anyone who can help-

Hi, I am currently working on a science fair project for school. My problem question is the following: "How does the ability to speak more than one language affect perception of Optical Illusions?" I have found my key questions. They are: 1)What is Language 2)How does the brain process language and optical illusions? 3) What makes people interpret optical illusions differently? 4)What is an optical illusion? . If anyone could help to answer these questions in interview form, I'd be forever grateful.

You've got a very interesting question. Certainly many people have devoted much energy to studying the relationship between brain and language, but optical illusions is certainly a fun side branch to look at. Check out these sites for some more information:
