Scientist checking the reliability of our senses

P3 have been finding out about our senses and asking the question; How reliable are our senses?

We looked at optical illusions and watched a clip where our sense of sight was tricked when we were focusing on counting the basket ball passes.

We listened to musical instruments with our eyes closed. Could we tell what instrument it was? Could we hear where the sound was coming from when the instrument stopped playing?

Today we used our sense of smell to identify smells. Was it easier to tell what the smell was with eyes open or closed?
