PSYC 370 - Sensation and Perception

(3 cr) Sensation and perception is the subfield of psychology that examines how elemental stimuli in the environment (e.g., light) are translated into a complex psychological phenomenon (e.g., perception of color). All five sensory modalities (vision, audition, olfaction, gustation, and tactile/ body senses) will be addressed. Physiology of the sensory systems and theories of perception are the major thrust of this course. An attempt will be made to address applications of this field (e.g., acuity testing and therapy). Prerequisites: PSYC 251  and ENGL 102 , 103 , or 104 .
