A Very Short Introduction to...Perception
Wednesday 4 April
Perception is one of the oldest and most deeply investigated topics in the field of psychology, and also raises some profound philosophical questions. It is concerned with how we use the information reaching our senses to guide and control our behaviour and to create our particular, subjective experiences of the surrounding world. Experimental psychologist Prof Brian J. Rogers analyses the psychological and philosophical aspects of perception, and argues that what we see is not what we perceive. He investigates recent insights gained from the use of imaging techniques, and the attempts to model perceptual processes in AI systems.
