Active Learning Activity 4.5 – The Graphic Brain For an excellent illustration of both the structure and function of the sensory system, The Graphic Brain, (Software CD, Timothy J. Tyler, Didactic Systems, Brooks/Cole Pub.), has excellent demonstrations in the modules on Visual Sensation, Auditory Sensation and Mechanical/Chemical Sensation. Although some of the modules contain details beyond the scope of an introductory psychology course it is very easy to select only parts of each module. Active Learning Activity 4.6 – Sensory System Grid To help students learn both the similarity in structure and the differences in detail among the senses pass out Handout 4.6 (a) – Active Learning, to be used either singly or in groups. Have the students fill in the cells in the grid. Handout 4.6 (b) – Active Learning, can be distributed as a study guide.

    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.
