PSYC 0359 - Sensation and Perception

Credits: 3

This course deals with how we construct a conception of physical reality from sensory experience, particularly from sight and sound. Students will review the main areas of perception from the neurophysiological, psychophysical, and cognitive points of view: the visual system and seeing, the auditory system and hearing, smell, taste, and touch. A series of lectures and demonstrations will introduce students to interesting perceptual phenomena.

Prerequisites: PSYC 0101 .
