Advanced Visual Perception - PSY463

Research in visual perception is rapidly changing, with broad impacts on many other areas of psychology and general life. In PSY463 we will meet weekly for lively seminars to critically evaluate recent papers chosen by the group. Recent areas of focus include face perception and the impact on ID screening for security applications; perception of bodies and its implications for eating disorders and body satisfaction, as well as developments in the understanding of basic visual processes. Students will hone their skills in presentations, receiving individualised feedback from peers and members of staff, and submit an essay on a chosen visual perception topic. In addition, staff and postgraduate students may present their own current research to students.
