+Introduction to Psychophysiology

Become familiar with the basic psychophysiological measurements of skin conductance, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and electromyography. Combine these skills in the performance of a simple psychophysiology experiment.

+Sensory Physiology

Find the blind spot, test for colorblindness and explore the science behind some optical illusions. Determine the distribution of touch and taste receptors, and investigate thermoception. Assess joint position sense and the perception of balance.

+Visual Evoked Potentials

Use a flash stimulus and pattern reversal to generate and record brain activity in the occipital lobe.
