The Neuroscience of Magic

Jonah Lerer breaks down the neuroscience of magic with Penn & Teller. Turns out those guys, or Teller at least, are super interested in why people experience magic in the way they do and really enjoy playing with those perceptions. Plus, Teller has a bronze bear at his house that can tell you what card you're thinking of (I wante one). Also see: Neuroscience of Bubbles and Google search for "neuroscience of" which looks like a treasure trove of interesting stuff to read today.
