Our sensation and perception of the world are determined by biological, sociocultural, and psychologic factors. It begins with the detection of an environmental stimulus via the sensory cells in our body. This stimulus makes its way through sensory receptors and complex biologic pathways before culminating in our cognitive centers, allowing us to interpret and make sense of it. Sensation and perception, although distinct, are both influenced by a complex interplay of the aforementioned factors, and therefore become almost indistinguishable in practice. Examples of sensation that demonstrate just how complex this functioning is are our senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. This course provides deeper insight into human sensory processing and perception.
Dr Ahuja makes the Psych Soc videos fun to watch making it easy to learn. Thank you Dr Ahuja.
Excellent delivery and breakdown of the information. The examples given helped with the understanding.
Explained very well made it relatable. Great lecturer explained very well and gave good examples.
I'm a visual learner and Dr Ahuja explains psychology and sociology very clearly and into layman terms. And I absolutely love the fact that the lectures follow the MCAT AAMC outline to the T. This takes out so much anxiety from me. I know that I'm covering everything needed on the MCAT with a highly qualified teacher and excellent production.
