During the trip to philly that my group and I took, I saw this gorgeous building that I just had to take a picture of. After further evaluation of this photo I noticed a lot of different things about this scene that I would not have realised without this course. Due to relative size the lamppost and the building look to be the same size but my awareness of the situation tells me that the building is indeed larger. Due to the power of occlusion I am aware that the wall is behind the lamppost and that there is one square building almost directly in front of another square building.
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.
