Lab meeting 18/4/16: The shrunken finger illusion paper

Ed Yong covered a new paper in Cell on an illusory effect where if you put your finger inside a hemisphere that from your point of view looks like a sphere, you feel your finger is shorter, as if it was touching the outside of the sphere you think you are looking at. I want to replicate and play with this with students next year, so let’s read the paper!
