Course Description for Human Sensory Perception
Human Sensory Perception
Prerequisite: PSY 2012
Description: This course surveys sensory systems and perceptual processes, primarily in humans. Content includes anatomical structures, behavioral observations, and theoretical models. The interaction of biological systems and cognitive processes is emphasized. One system (e.g., vision) may be studied in considerable detail as a model of perception and perception research, with selected examples from other sensory systems to examine modality-specific mechanisms and underlying principles of all perceptual systems.
