Muller Lyer Illusion Experiment

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Julie Evey (Faculty), Jan 19, 2012

I used to teach Sensation and Perception - I would use this experiment if I still did.  It is very easy to use if one has Java loaded or is comfortable with the download.  The experiment allows the students to see the true effect of the arrows by playing with degree of angle and comparing lines with the arrowheads the same as well as opposite.  The content provides the student with a solid understand of the illusion.
