Visual Perception Cognition
Fall 2023
Taught By: Simone Calbi and Ben van Buren
Section: A

CRN: 7057

Credits: 3

This course will survey the state of the art in vision science, including research on the perception of color, motion, shape, material, and depth. We will discuss the critical role that attention and visual working memory play in constraining what we see, as well as new work investigating seemingly higher-level regularities in visual experience, such as the perception of objects, events, and personal agency (i.e. the sense that we are causing something to happen). Some important questions that we will consider are: How does visual processing shape later (e.g. social) cognitive processing? In what ways can life experience change what we see? And to what extent does perception reflect reality? *This course is open to Parsons Design and Technology MFA students. Students enrolled in other Parsons programs should contact the instructor prior to registering.
