Eyes have become a hot area of research for many neuroscientists, but what they're interested in is not what eyes see, but how they move. Our eyes dart about all day long and researchers estimate we make 200 thousand eye movements each day. Those eye movements can tell a lot about what we are thinking. But it turns out we don't see with our eyes...we see with our brains. On this week's show we peek into your brain's magical ability to see, with and without your eyes.We hear from Dr. Doug Munoz, a neuroscientist at Queens University who has actually counted our daily eye movements. Dr. Munoz is the director of the Eye Movement Lab at Queen's and oddly enough his interest in neuroscience all began with keeping his eye on the ball .
