This course explores our perceptual systems and how they create and shape our experience of the world around us. We will consider the neurophysiology of perceptual systems as well as psychological approaches to the study of perception, covering all of the human senses with a special emphasis on vision. Class demonstrations will introduce students to interesting perceptual phenomena.
This course will develop students' scientific writing skills. Throughout the semester students will write reaction papers in response to current research articles in the field of sensation and perception.
