I chose to write about an interesting video I've seen a few times on YouTube. It's called Virtual Barber Shop. You have to put on headphones in order to get the whole experience. The way the person talks in the video, makes it seem like he is walking around you or even whispering in your ear. At one point he pretends to put a bag over your head, and it actually feels like you can't breathe! This video is called a binaural recording, which is a method for recording sounds that uses two microphones, so it sounds as a 3-D sound sensation. It makes you feel like you're in the room with the person. I thought this was very interesting, and I wasn't sure how people were able to record sounds like this.
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.
