PSYCHOLOGY 129 Section:
Winter Quarter 2005
|Prerequisites:||Psychology 1, 41 101.|
If eyes are the windows of the soul, then our ears must be the gates of language. This class explores how behavior of humans and other animals is influenced by the way that our senses interpret the world. The 5 classical senses are covered, as well as specialized senses possessed by some species (e.g., magnetic and pheromone detection senses). The course examines specializations of the receptors and sensory nervous system as a means of understanding how these systems contribute to species-specific behaviors and pathologies.
2 midterms and a non-cumulative final, each counting 25%; The remaining 25% of the grade comes from a term paper, the topic to mutually determined by the instructor and student.
