Christopher Tyler, the head of the Brain Imaging Center at Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco, joins University Place Presents host Norman Gilliland to discuss the science of depth perception and Leonardo da Vinci's pioneering work in understanding perspective. Da Vinci may have been the inspiration for Torricelli who drew the map Columbus used in his discovery of America.
