Great Courses lecture series! My graduate and post graduate degrees are in the Humanities, but I also have a minor degree in psychology with an accent on the physiological and perceptual aspects of consciousness, and I have continued my study in this latter area through the years. Thus, I can tell you that the material presented in Vishton's lecture series is scientifically accurate, presented clearly enough for the layman and is interesting enough for someone who has done much study in this field. I listened to Grim's lecture series on the Philosophy Of Mind (also in the Great Courses selections) before this one, and I highly recommend that they be taken together. Much of the material dovetails in a way to make both series much richer and more comprehensible.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started this series. I was a little worried it would be a little over my head since I had virtually no background in the field of human perception, but I was SO wrong. The speaker never once spoke down to me, but he still kept each lesson easy to understand and enjoyable. As a teacher myself, I really appreciate that! He used real-world examples, actual experiments, and gave experiments we could recreate at home to helps us understand how we process the world around us! I listened to several chapters back-to-back because it was enjoyable.

This course provided a lot of information that one can use in everyday life. I gained a better understanding of how my brain uses its senses to understand the environment.
