Honest con man Nicholas J. Johnson delves deep into the human brain to reveal the psychological and neurological secrets of deception and illusion. 

Created in collaboration with leading neuroscientists from around the world, Deceptology is part magic show and part expose. 

Rather than simply explaining how the tricks work, Nicholas will explain why.

  • Quicker Than The Eye: How the structure of the human eye prevents us from seeing the world as it really is.
  • ?The Illusion Of Choice: Why our brains often feel like we are making a decision when really, there isn't one.
  • ?Bad Memories: How memory works and why everyone from magic show audiences to crime witnesses get it wrong.
  • ?Lie Defectors: What is a lie detector and why don't they really work?
  • ?The Motion Aftereffect: Why our brains can be tricked into seeing motion when none occurs?

As well as learning the secrets of classic magic tricks students will also learn how this weird psychological and neurological tricks apply to the world around them. 

From road safety to sales techniques to forensics, Nicholas will teach students how deception invades our every day life.
