PSYC 51.02 Face Perception

Faces are one of the richest sources of information for non-verbal communication. Through faces we recognize identity and infer the emotional and mental states of others, as well as where they are directing their attention. This course will focus on the neural mechanisms for face perception and how these mechanisms facilitate rapid extraction of cues that facilitate social interaction. Particular relevance will be put on the neural systems for representation of person knowledge.  In addition to weekly readings, students will have a written exam at the end of the course.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
