Advanced Laboratory in Sensation and Perception

This advanced laboratory course is designed to examine the methods of research used in sensation and perception, specifically in the area of reading, including the study of eye movements in reading. The course will include the analysis and presentation of material from primary source readings (journal articles) related to the sensory and perceptual processes involved in reading. The course will culminate in student research projects, which will include research design, execution of the study, analysis of data, and presentation of the results in a written research report and participation in a poster session.
