Learners will be introduced to the problems that vision faces, using perception as a guide. The course will consider how what we see is generated by the visual system, what the central problem for vision is, and what visual perception indicates about how the brain works. The evidence will be drawn from neuroscience, psychology, the history of vision science and what philosophy has contributed. Although the discussions will be informed by visual system anatomy and physiology, the focus is on perception. We see the physical world in a strange way, and goal is to understand why.

Excellent course. Did a lot to change my views of perception and reality.
It is such a nice course. The lecturer is so inspiring and 'provocative'. The perception theory was explained in a very novel way.
Very professional and easy to follow lecture side by side with a presentation.
Carefully listen to "About the Course" video, so your expectations won't be deceived
Will I receive a transcript from Duke University for completing this course?
