Neurons, Physics, and Baseball

Several professors combined to win the Best Illusion of the Year contest at a gathering of neurologists. The illusion shows how a curveball may look like it "breaks" (the common baseball term) because it moves from central to peripheral vision. The illusion is viewable here, and it is most impressive.
