I recently stumbled upon a commercial geared towards educating the public about being aware of cyclists. The video is a perfect example of change blindness. There are 21 differences between the original shot of all of the suspects and the ending shot when the murderer is revealed. When I first watched the video I did not notice a single difference since I was busy focusing on the suspects. I like the fact that the use of change blindness is utilized in this example to show motorists how easy it is to miss what you are not intentionally looking for,
The psychology of Perception involves the interaction of our senses and our conscious mind. Perception is involved in every aspect of our lives as we make decisions and judgments based on what we experience. If you study diligently you will leave this course with a broad understanding of sensation and perception. From this general understanding you will be able to further investigate areas of interest by means of literature review and research on specific topics.
