As a college freshman, I found the The Internet Psychology Lab to be an entertaining theme park of interactive illusions and experiments. Three of the four main topics--audio perception, visual perception, and cognition--took you on a fascinating journey into the world of perception and illusion.
The interactive illusion demonstrations were fascinating, stimulating, mind boggling, and, for the most part, fun. However, when clicking on the "selective adaptation" link accessed from the visual perception category, I must warn those who are susceptible to migrain headaches to be careful. This one is an eye shocker. The graphics may trigger a migraine. Since black and white images zing my eyes, and, yes, trigger migraines, I did not review this section further.
Also, those who suffer from motion sickness, do not go into motion parallax!!! This section is reserved for you daredevils! It looks great and fun; however, I get dizzy riding in the back seat, so I quickly exited this section without hesitation.
Now, remember, the main link from Merlot will take you directly to the "visual perception" page, only; if you want to visit the other three main topics: auditory, cognition, and memory (this one is currently under construction)--you need to click "home" at the bottom of the page. This will give you access to the previously mentioned links. And from this home page--Internet Psychology Lab--you can find access to several other sources offering illusional and perceptional sites.
So go for it, guys. Take a tour of this site and be prepared to stimulate your eyes!
remember, this site is not only fun, it has a wealth of information incorporated within each section that is highly educational, and extremely useful for both student and faculty.
Graphs, charts, diagrams, interactive experiments, research data; it's all in there.
Be prepared to spend a lot of time navigating this site. I spent over an hour there, and did not even scratch the surface of what's offered.
You will need RealTime Player and a Java compatible browser to successfully navigate this site. Some experiments were difficult to get up and running; however, for the majority, the pages changed quickly and the interactive projects ran smoothly.

I really liked this site..... enough to persue it with all the trouble I had accessing it... some sort of technical glitch. It was very informative and explained each "trick" My eyes hurt afterwards though!
Could not access this site right off the bat. I had to try lots of times over a period of 4 days. I finally got in, thank heavens because it was definitely worth it!!!!!!!!
