PSY40800 Readings in Visual & Social
Academic Year 2021/2022
This module provides an introduction to the study of social cognition from the perspective of visual perception and through critical reading and discussion of research papers. Topics include the perception of action and biological motion, the role of eye gaze and pointing in the development of shared attention, the perception of categorical information from faces (race, gender and attractiveness), body perception, and the question of whether anomalous social perception may underlie problems in social cognition in autism spectrum disorder. The reading material is chosen to cover theoretical background, and both experimental and
developmental approaches to the study of social cognition.
On completion of this module students should be able to:
Demonstrate an understanding of the different methods by which we study visual and social cognition and how they relate to each other
Demonstrate an ability to critically appraise research papers in the area of visual and social cognition
