Illusiions of specific interest to children


There are a large number of additional sites on the World Wide Web. Many of these are only lecture notes provided by an instructor or transcribed by a student for use in an entry level course containing a section on vision. Some are more specific short papers discussing a specific facet of vision and relying on a "floating model". Both of these classes generally quote the conventional wisdom related to vision. Such sites are not included here.
