Kursinhalt

Explore the role of touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell in our behaviour

How do our sensory systems work together to help us understand the world and somebody else’s behaviour?

On this course, you’ll find out - investigating perception and how our senses help our mind create the world we live in. You’ll also explore the differences between perception and sensation and how they work together with attention to determine what we perceive in the environment.
