PSY256 Sensation and Perception

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course explores how multisensory mechanisms transform external stimuli into information that our brains can understand and reliably interpret. All senses will be examined with an emphasis on vision. Topics include perception of color, motion, form, depth, perceptual illusions, and perceptual disorders such as inability to see motion and/or identify objects or faces.
