POST 1: Jamie Houck

The first thing I did was look up the word PERCEPTION on YouTube and this show came up that just came out.  The trailer above talks about this professor who teaches perception, and on the side he helps one of his former students who is currently a detective using perception.  Then it goes on to tell you about how he has schizophrenia and this disorder causes him to percieve certain things. This caused a light bulb to go off in my head.  I wondered what does this disorder have to do with perception so I went to google and typed in perception on schizophrenia.  I went to this website and it said this, "Individuals with schizophrenia commonly experience a disorder in their perception. Their surroundings are unreal and their external sensory environment seems different from what they previously knew. In fact, their perceptions become derailed; misinterpreting situations and the chronology of events. They are unable to distinguish between reality and imaginary. They have a false sense of reality and are unable to interpret the real context of situations. This could be due to the testimony that their experiences are fragmented, (Chan1)." This type of perception can cause the professor to either have this alter reality and percieve someone is giving him motivation or help with the case.  This also stops him from living life because the perception can cause him to have bad reactions.
