This program argues that the human visual system is skillful at some things, but that we miss an amazing amount of what is going on right in front of our eyes. Whether spotting attractive people in a crowd, gauging depth and distance, or even predicting where things end up, the eyes are at their most perceptive.

Discussion also focuses on the brainís processing of images, as well as the coordination of our sense of vision with our bodies.
