PSY 4200 Sensation & Perception

This course will explore the sensory and perceptual systems that support an organism’s interaction with the environment. To do so, the course will involve an examination of how physical energies are detected and processed by biological systems (including the classic five senses) to support mental and behavioral responses, and to produce a perceptual experience. Using lecture and phenomenological interactions, the course includes a study of the physical stimuli, the nature of the sensory organs and related neural pathways, and the effects of adaptation, learning, experience, and individuality on perception in humans and other species.

  Prerequisite(s): PSY 1100
