Sensation and Perception

This is an introductory-level seminar series on the psychology and biology of visual perception. Topics include illusions, retina, contours, colour, motion, Gestalt psychology, faces and objects, attention and consciousness, computer vision, eye movements, neuropsychology and art. Each week 2-3 students present one paper each for 20 minutes. After each presentation there is a question and answer and discussion section. Each student can also receive a 30-min tutorial with me a few days before their presentation. Participants receiving five or more CP must also complete an essay on the same topic as their presentation.
