Ad Topics in Visual Cognition

Spring 2021

Taught By: Ben van Buren

Section: A

CRN: 6926

Credits: 3

This seminar will serve two functions. First, it will provide a venue for graduate students to discuss groundbreaking research on visual perception and cognition, including articles that seminar participants propose based on their own research interests. Second, it will teach students everything they need to program experiments in Python using the PsychoPy libraries. We will begin with some simple exercises in which we generate visual illusions of color, motion, depth, shape, duration, causation, and animacy/intentionality. In the last few weeks of the course, students will focus on programming and running experiments that they themselves have designed, on topics of their choosing in this research area. Prerequisites: Visual Perception & Cognition or The Psychology of Aesthetics & Design.
