PS 378 Vision (Fall/Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: One of the following: PS 272, PS 285, PS 373, or BI 481
How do we see the world? Why does it look that way? Vision is the sensory system we typically rely on most to make sense of our environment. But vision is far from a passive reflection of the scene before our eyes: by necessity much of what we see is a result of inferences we make about the environment based on incomplete or ambiguous information. This course covers both the neuroscience of vision and its cognitive aspects to understand how we perceive the richness of the world around us.
