PSYC 032. Perception
Perception is fundamental to both cognition and action. How does perception work? This course covers a variety of scientific theories of perception including biological analyses of comparative functional anatomy of sensory systems and the informational "ecology" in which they have evolved, as well as functionalist information processing theories including computational, statistical and inferential approaches. An integrated series of laboratories and demonstrations provides students with experience testing theories of perception empirically.
