Space Perception

Matin, Leonard Silver_nugget
Space Perception

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This seminar was really tiny, and that was a shame because Prof. Matin is wonderful. Everything the other reviewers said and more. Even though I had absolutely no background in the material, this course ended up being fairly easy because of his patience and understanding. At the beginning of the course, i exected the material to be really boring, but fortunately it turned out to be (mostly) fascinating. I still know a little more than i ever wanted to about hearing systems in owls, but I definitely reccommend this course to anyone with any interest in illusions, space perception, psychology, or anything vaguely related to the topic. Matin actually gets happy when people begin to understand things and is willing to put tons of effort into achieving that result.


Our class was small, so we had to do quite a few presentations each. The more people, the less work for each. The reading looks intimidating at first, but the class periods can't cover everything so it slows down to a very manageable amount. Its important to understand everything, so the material isn't rushed.
