This book defines the terminology used in the fields of sensation and perception and describes the biological and physical bases required for understanding sensory experiences.

It offers more specifically an introduction to the study of psychophysics, auditory perception, visual perception, and attention, and discusses the basic concepts and Format: Hardcover. One way to think of this concept is that sensation is a physical process, whereas perception is psychological.
