Real-world Applications of Visual Perception - PSY342

The diverse influences of visual perception in everyday life form the subject matter for this course. Topics include the perception of motion during driving; of faces in security and forensic contexts; of body shape and size as relevant to issues of body image, and the perception of depth in artwork through the ages. It also deals with the study of reading, reading disability, and other perceptual disorders. In addition to interactive lectures, practical sessions will give students hands-on experience of the principles of 3D vision through training in stereoscopic photography as well as imparting the skills used in perceptual research and other related areas of psychology.
