A study of our senses and the ways in which we perceive through them. Emphasis will be placed on studying the underlying mechanisms of visual function such as colour, form, depth and movement perception.

Many of the principles established from vision research will then be applied to some of the other modalities such as audition, somesthesis and olfaction.
