Sensation has been defined as the physical "sensing" of a stimulus (e.g., the physiological response to some stimulus before you know what it actually is) or the initial detection of energy from the physical world. Perception refers to the label or interpretation you put on a sensation. This course will sample a few of the focal areas in sensations and perception, and will emphasize some "classic" studies as well as a few recent studies that are particularly noteworthy. 3 credits
