Unit 2 Psychology students have been introduced to understanding visual and taste perceptions. To explore this topic deeply they have been compiling a folio of practical activities to compare the sensations and perceptions of vision and taste, and analyse factors that may lead to the occurrence of perceptual distortions.
In Term 2 the students explored vision, their task was to dissect a bull’s eye to understand the components and structure of the eye, where the parts of the eye are located and how they work together to enable vision. Understanding the physical mechanics of the eye brought greater understanding of how perceptual distortions may occur. They will continue to further explore taste and visual perception in Term 3.
