Can you trust your senses? Can your perception of reality be altered? In this program we look at how your nervous system can be affected by perception and how sensory information can be distorted.
The first session of this program exposes students to different environmental experiences, moving from calming meditation to an exhilarating virtual reality rollercoaster. Students are able to apply their understanding of research methods in an interactive way while generating primary investigation data (heart rate) for analysis.
In the second session students will explore sensory perception systems and participate in activities that can demonstrate distortion of those systems, particularly taste.
