Sensation and Perception

This course meets the "science" perspective and thus one of the major goals is to introduce you to the kinds of questions scientists ask and the methods they use to answer those questions. Sensation and Perception is the topic within science that we will use as a model.

Perception refers to your conscious experience of the world around you. Sensation refers to the anatomy and physiology of the sensory systems that provide the information for perception. We study the anatomy and physiology to try to understand perception.

There are many intriguing questions and problems in Sensation and Perception. For example:

  • Our current knowledge of the physiology of color perception suggests that we cannot see the color brown.
  • Why does music have the power to influence our emotions?
  • Does time really fly when you are having fun?
