PSYC 440 - Sensation and Perception

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: PSYC 100 and PSYC 242; or consent of instructor
See Addenda  for changes to this course effective Spring 2020.

This course explores the relationship between the nature of the environment and perceptual experience, including the sensory processes. Perceptual processes examined include spatial, pattern, and color perception, as well as our perception of time, depth and the perception of action and events. The relationship between perception, memory, cognition and behavior is investigated, with implications for our understanding of cultural differences, how we perceive personality and emotion and psychotherapeutic change. Offered annually. (Formerly PSYC 340)
