Each tour takes approximately 1 hour. The Buseum will be available during the 4 hour time frame so you can attend at a time convenient for you.

The Science of Perception Deception
Mind Games 1, The Science of Perception Deception – Virtual on Zoom
Monday, July 19 at 7 p.m.

Our brain decides how we perceive everything around us. It finds patterns and solves problems efficiently, except for when it lies to us. In this engaging program, William Pack explores the real science of how our brains trick us into seeing and believing things that don’t exist. In the program, you’ll experience how optical illusions work, why people fall for scams, and how we make thousands of choices every day that are influenced subconsciously.

William will also give the attendees proven, scientific, actionable techniques to preserve brain health. At the end, you may be left wondering if your brain has a mind of its own.

These programs are free and open to the public. For additional information contact Amy Lutzke at (920) 563-7790 or email
