List of demos and materials

List of demos and materials: (Shimojo, S., 10/16/2020)

This is the latest package of Auditory-Visual illusions studied in this laboratory, which anybody can experience.
For those who are attending a lecture by Prof. Shimojo, or his lab members/collaborators, we recommend downloading all these demos ahead of time. Best experience when the movies are played from your personal computer.



– Download the movies by clicking right-click and selecting “Download linked file”.

– Most of A(uditory)-V(isual) demos work better in the peripheral visual field, so try to fixate away (>30 deg. visual angle) to observe. In some cases, the movie works better, in some other cases, the YouTube movie may work better.
