Science Talk with UNBC
March 13, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Attention grade 10-12 students at EBUS!
Please join us on Wednesday, March 13 @4:00pm for our next “Science Talk” v-class. UNBC president Dr. Daniel Weeks will be presenting on his research in psychology. We hope you will join us!
Topic: ” Perception and Action in (not so) Everyday Things”.
Even a task as simple and automatic as opening a door involves a series of perceptions and actions that are melded together by our expectations and experience. In this talk we will explore some of the links between perception and action and some of the factors that influence the decisions we make.
