Extra Credit Opportunity DUE: 21 November, 2016 at 11:59:59.99 PM Introduction Perception is the common denominator in all of human psychology because we all perceive something. Each person’s experience is unique to that person and accessible to only that person. It is possible that we perceive things in the same way, but we just don’t know because we cannot directly compare two perceptual experiences. Perception is an interesting psychological phenomenon, but studying it does present some challe nges. Firstly, we can’t really compare two perceptions next to each other, as mentioned above. Secondly, like many other psychological phenomena, we can measure either the output of perception, including behavior and self-reports, or the physiological effect of a stimulus, and only then infer perceptual processes. We simply do not know (yet) where or how sensation becomes perception; presuming of course we have framed the issue correctly in the first place. You are considering taking this extra credit opportunity because you are interested at the thought of studying perception. Maybe you want to do scientific research. Maybe you are just plainly interested in some aspect of perception. You are here in any case, and you have read this far into the assignment. I like you already.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
