      Hey all, wanted to get more info on this, or find a way to verify and get more leads for research. I remember reading a single article in a magazine about Teller, upon first hearing about conscious recognition patterns in the brain and how neurologist were fascinated by it and the locations each sense originates in the brain, offering his services and insights on this to the scientists, as he claimed that "magicians" and illusionists had been doing the exact same thing for years now by deceiving audiences into perceiving one thing while hiding the true value. I was wondering if there was any more literature on this subject, and if so where, as I have not seen any more articles, scholarly or otherwise, on this subject.
