We spent a couple of days in class trying to figure out how to see optical illusions. When I was younger I would sit for hours and look at those books. I never had anyone explain to me why I would see an image from a bunch of meaningless colors and patterns, I just knew I really liked what happened when I would concentrate and see the final image. I can't see them now because my eye sight is horrible. I thought this video was interesting because it covered a lot of what we talked about in class and gave some really good examples.
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.
