Contents

The seminar reviews important models and experimental paradigms in attention and awareness research, using classic and recent original papers. Lecture on Perception, Cognition and Knowledge (part of Basic Module 1) is highly recommended.
The seminar reviews classic and grounded views on the nature of cognition, its dynamics, and its relation with action. Students will use Matlab simulations to help visualize and learn the new concepts (e.g., stability of cognitive states, space- time continuity of representations, sensorimotor integration and selection of information).
Perception of shape, color, motion, and stereoscopic depth
  • perceptual organization
  • object recognition.
The seminar reviews the most important psychophysical models, including signal detection and threshold theories. Special emphasis is on experimental techniques and practical calculation.

Lecture on Perception, Cognition and Knowledge (part of Basic Module 1) is highly recommended.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

On successfully completing the module students will be able to,

Xpresent their knowledge of special topics from the field of Perception

  • apply the acquired understanding of perceptual processes
  • read and interpret scientific English literature in this field
  • summarize and compare research papers and highlight relevant information from these papers
  • debate scientific issues with peers or lecturers and thereby refer to complex concepts
