Experience a world where regular rules don’t apply.The MIRAGE Illusion Box takes advantage of the natural assumptions that your brain makes, to then utilise these assumptions to make your body look and feel completely different. It tricks your brain! The illusion box targets neuroplasticity – the ability of your brain to update what you experience based on the information that it is provided.
These illusions have been used for fun but, some of these illusions have also been shown to reduce osteoarthritis pain (both in the hand and in the knee).
This is the only illusion box in Australia. Don’t miss out! Come try it for yourself!!
People behind the scenes: Associate Professor Tasha Stanton, The University of South Australia, Adelaide and Dr Roger Newport, University of Loughborough, Loughborough, UK.
