Neuromagic is a combination of illusionism, psychology, medicine and dexterity. Leaving the classical form of magic behind, Victor demonstrates the insights behind his unique illusions and (interactive) neuropsychological experiments. How easy are you to derive? How does our memory work? And is there actually a free will? Experience for yourself how easy your own brains and senses can be fooled. Video
