Overview of the cognitive aspects of human perception; independent and critical reflection of cognitive psychological content

The course introduces into general psychology and deepens one of its interesting subsections, the psychology of perception.

Subject of general psychology is the description and explanation of the basic structures and processes that determine human behavior and experience. General psychology examines universal laws of mental processes and therefore, it is both the basis for all psychological disciplines and it is the link between them.

The contents of the course include not only a basic overview of the objects, aims and topics of general psychology (e.g., motor skills, perception, learning, memory, knowledge, thinking, problem solving, decision making, language, motivation, emotion) but also focus on the cognitive aspects of human perception. Inter alia, the perception term, the main problems of perceptual psychology (e.g., the central problem: Association of stimulus structure and perception), the constitutive features of perception (objectivity, comprehensiveness, meaningfulness of perception, conceptual perception, depending of perception on the current and previous context), perception as perceptual activity, and the constancy phenomenon will be discussed.
