Purves Lab: See For Yourself

Purves Lab / See For Yourself: Explore how the research in the Purves Lab seeks to explain why we see and hear what we do. Several new demos have been added to the See For Yourself section of the website.
Things are not what they seem. nor are they otherwise -- I'm delighted to report that the Dale Purvis group at Duke U have scored in the Top 100 Scientific Discoveries of 2007 for their work on the deep links between music and vocal speech. Mind you, I told Dale his work was "the most significant advance in our theory of music since Pythagoras (or even Ptolemy)" which IMHO makes their research way more than just the top of 2007
