What surprises people

What took them by surprise in the class material:

“I signed up for this class with a minimal idea of what to expect. From the title of the course, I knew that we were going to talk about how we perceive our senses, but we learned so much more. We had to start the discussion with what makes a stimulus a stimulus and what it means to perceive. Recognizing a friend's face in a crowd or interpreting a scene looks simple from the outside, but there are many factors going into perception.”

“I was not expecting to learn so much about cognition and development in this class. I felt like we touched a lot on development, and how this knowledge aids our understanding of sensation and perception.”
