For me the most interesting concept we have gone over so far is definitely the information about illusions. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks that they look really cool, but beyond that, it's super interesting because of the psychological basis for why we misinterpret these images. It's very clever, considering we could be told we are going to look at an optical illusion and our brain can still perceive the image wrong. I think that topics like illusions (the "cooler" or "more interesting" subjects) are the reason most psychology majors chose psychology; how our brains work can be fascinating. I look forward to learning more about how the brain works in general, and specifically the areas we don't know much about (like how present our subconscious is in our thought process).
