PSY 232 Sensation and Perception

This course explores our sensory systems: vision, hearing, touch, taste, smell, and perhaps other systems such as balance. We will study both the anatomy underlying these systems as well as perceptual phenomena. Mini-labs are interspersed throughout the course to experience these phenomena. We will also read and discuss primary research articles related to the topics covered in class. This course is offered in the fall semester.


Prerequisite: PSY 104, BIO 101 or BIO 111 ( may be taken concurrently).  PSY 101 recommended.


Credits: 1
