The study of sensation and perception examines the physics of the real world (stimulus), how the nervous system captures information about the environment (sensation), and the translation of sensory information into meaningful events (perception). Multiple levels of analysis will be introduced including sensory physiology, psychophysiology, and psychophysics. The class will cover a variety of topics, possibly to include how the eye is not a camera, why people need glasses, how 3-D movies work, the mysteries of face blindness, and what's hiding behind your eardrum.
