The problem is - they are wrong. Their notion of curve v. straight is simply untrue, and when they spoke at g4g9, it was called to their attention that other eye tracking studies they did, looking for other phenomena, directly contradicted the results expected based on straight v curve. Further, they fail to control for the "energy" of the motion, rather than just the trajectory. To compare a curved motion moving in an upward direction to a straight motion on a parallel plane to the floor, is apples and oranges.

The sleights of mind book is an excellent read.
very fun stuff.
I just finished it a few weeks ago.
Lots of spoilers that some magicians will probably take offense to though.
