Introduction to Sensation and Perception

Author(s): Students of PSY 3031, Edited by Dr. Cheryl Olman

Subject(s): Psychology, Cognitive and behavioural neuroscience

Publisher: University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing

This book was created by the students of PSY 3031: Sensation and Perception, as a class project, because there is no existing open-source textbook for S&P. Content is, for the most part, re-used and re-mixed from existing open-source materials from Psychology and Anatomy textbooks. We needed to do this project because we need a resource that goes into greater depth than the Sensation and Perception sections of introductory psychology textbooks. We also wanted to create a resource with a stronger neuroscience foundation than your average psychology textbook, with strong links between physiology and perception. The final product will always be a work in progress, but hopefully a useful collection of materials to support college-level courses that want to understand how human physiology supports human perceptual experiences.

The course has two over-arching themes or guiding principles, both of which rest on the basic understanding that perception is an interpretive act, which means that our perceptions are sometimes only loosely based on our sensory experiences:

  • Our brains shape our environment: there are many things that we simply do not perceive because we are not prepared to perceive them.
  • Our environments shape our brains: color categories and phonetic boundaries are just two examples of how our conscious access to sensory information is limited by the culture we grew up in.

This guide contains the chief sources of information to be found in government offices and institutions in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. By following the steps outlined, a good basic history of one's house can be assembled - when it was built, who built it, who owned it, its dimensions, its cost, and materials used. A search might also lead to the discovery of changes subsequently made to the property, when these changes occurred, and what they cost. A search might even uncover the original floor plan and exterior appearance. Suggestions for additional research are provided for diligent researchers who want more information about styles, the architectural history of Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the nation, or the political and social history of the cities, the states, or their neighborhoods.
