Mystery of the Senses: Vision: Nova

1995 NR

Hosted by naturalist Diane Ackerman, this "Mystery of the Senses" installment of "Nova" examines the sense of sight. Ackerman examines the biology of vision, how our brain processes and interprets what we see and the perceptions that govern sight. She also delves into how the brain reacts to optical illusions, why the sky is blue, the use of light and color in art and eye placement in particular animals.
