PHOENIX -- "Sleights of Mind" gives non-magicians a real up-close look at the true secrets of magic.

Dr. Stephen Macknik and Dr. Susana Martinez-Conde,the founders of the new discipline of neuromagic, convinced some of the world’s greatest magicians to allow scientists to study their techniques for tricking the brain. "Sleights of Mind" is the result of the yearlong study.

They say magic can reveal how our brains work in everyday situations.

Macknik and Martinez-Conde stopped by 3TV to explain it to Tara Hitchcock.
