The MAGIC Lab for magicians
We are inviting magicians to participate in our studies on magic. Scroll down to directly take part in a short survey and participate in our study on magicians' assumptions.
You can also subscribe to be alerted when we have new experiments and need answers and/or help from magicians, to advance the science of magic.
Here are 2 surveys made for magicians.
You can participate to all of them in the order that you wish.
