Professor Higashiyama Awarded for Studying Object Perception When Viewed Through One’s Legs

Professor Atsuki Higashiyama, Ritsumeikan University College of Letters, studied the perceived size and perceived distance of objects when looking through one’s legs. A topic so imaginative that it was awarded at the 26th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony at Harvard University. The Ig Nobel Prizes "honor achievements that make people LAUGH, and then THINK" and have been awarded to 10 unusual scientific achievements every year since 1991.
