PSYC - 355. Sensation and Perception


3 credit(s)
This course examines how humans take in information through the senses, and the relationship between sensory input and conscious experience. The visual system is examined in detail as a prototype, and examples from other senses (hearing, taste, touch, pain) are included throughout the course. Among topics included are psychophysics, physiological bases of sensation, attention, perception of form, depth, contrast, motion, object constancies, and perceptual development. Lecture material is supplemented by demonstrations designed to allow students to experience many of the perceptual phenomena studied in the course.

Prerequisite(s): PSYC 100 .
