We rely on our sensory systems to feel, see, hear, smell, and taste the world around us. In this class, we will dive into how sensory systems evolved, how sensory organs and the brain work together to produce perception, and learn about foundational experiments in the field. Students will be guided through simple activities relating to class material, including observing visual illusions and testing reflex pathways.
