Course Credits:

This course provides the students with an in-depth look at how the sensory systems (visual and auditory systems) and the brain transform physical stimuli into mental representations. The course will follow the physical stimulus of light or sound from the external world through the sensory organ and into the areas of the brain designed to process the information. Individual differences in perceptual processes are emphasized. A major component of the course is an analysis of a specific area of sensation and perception through a literature review and the writing of an APA formatted literature review. Prerequisites: PY 201 and PY 325. (Program goals 1, 2, 3, 6, 7)
