About this course

All the information we take in from the world around us comes from our five senses. But we don't just perceive the world, our brain interprets it as the data arrives through vision, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. In this course you will learn about how human perceive and interpret the world, with special emphasis in the course on vision, what grabs and holds human attention, and the relationship between our sense data, our beliefs, and our decisions.

You will learn:

The difference between central and peripheral vision
How peripheral vision "calls the shots" of what we see
What grabs our attention visually
How our senses are related to each other
The neuroplasticity of sense data in the brain
How embodied cognition works

and much, much more! There are quizzes and exercises throughout the course so you can test your knowledge and practice what you are learning. You can send your exercise results in to Susan Weinschenk, Ph.D., the instructor, and she will personally review your work and send you feedback.
