A study of the structure and function of sensory systems, the information that these systems provide the brain, and the subsequent interpretation of sensory information that we call perception. The course focuses on visual perception (e.g., brightness, color, form, depth, movement, constancy, illusions) and auditory perception (e.g., detection, discrimination, loudness, pitch) and incorporates art and music.

This survey course will examine the contributions of psychological research to the understanding, prevention, and treatment of a variety of health concerns. This course will employ a biopsychosocial model, which means that we will study how social, emotional, behavioral, biological, and spiritual factors influence health. The specific topics include injury, stress, pain management, additions, sleep, patient-physician relations, and chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, and AIDS. Prerequisite: PSYC 111
