Blindsight: What would you conclude about visual perception from the phenomenon of blindsight? When the patient known as “TN” navigates around obstacles in spite of being blind, is he experiencing perception? Sensation? Neither? How does blindsight relate to the normal processes of sensation and perception?
Illusions: Is there any connection between the phenomenon of “change blindness” and the techniques that magicians use to create their illusions? What do you think you have learned about the human perceptual system from examining these and similar phenomena?
Mr. Subliminal: Are you worried about being influenced by subliminal stimuli? Why or why not? Feel free to bring in other sources of information besides those in the lecture or textbook, but make sure you identify the source and critically evaluate how reliable and objective it seems to be.
First, read the following case study about evaluating evidence from published research: Learning Styles. Be sure to look at the meta-analysis that is linked there (read at least some of it), and read the whole summary article that is also linked there.
Then go to the DePaul Library website and do a search for “learning styles” in the “APA PsycInfo” database in the “A-Z Databases” section. Read the titles of the first two dozen or so articles that are returned for this search. The Learning Styles hypothesis is the idea that learning is better when the teaching method matches the learner’s preferred learning style. It turned out to be false. Do you think from reading these articles you would be able to tell that the Learning Styles hypothesis is actually false? Why or why not? What are some steps you would need to take to maximize your chances of coming to the right conclusion?
