This gigantic Café Wall optical illusion begs you to ferret out whether the lines are parallel or skewed. Turn the wheel to straighten out your thinking. Test your perception with additional large mounted illusions and learn why things aren’t always as they seem.

The wall will be available as part of Brain Awareness Week (BAW), a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. The Integrative Neuroscience Center of Biomedical Research Excellence and the Sierra Nevada Society for Neuroscience present a host of student oriented activities March 11-13, 2014, at the University of Nevada, Reno to celebrate and explore the wonders of the brain.
