Lecture no. 3 from the course: Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills

Errors of Perception

Taught by Professor Steven Novella | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

A solid understanding of metacognition relies on an understanding of the nature of perception. First, examine the nature of how our brains acquire and process information. Then, investigate the ways we can be deceived by what we think we perceive in phenomena such as attentional blindness, change blindness, and optical illusions.
