Sensation and Perception

  • http://www.exploratorium.edu
    The Exploratorium is a hands-on museum in San Francisco. Its online location provides students from afar with many of the same experiments and exhibits available on-site. Many of the exhibits deal with subjects very relevant to psychology. Many of these focus on issues related to sensation and perception. There is also an excellent one on memory. The exhibits are interactive and allow students to experience firsthand the perceptual illusions that they study.  The software Shockwave is required for many of the exhibits. The software can be downloaded from free from the museum site.

    This is a commercial page but the illusions are topnotch and allow you to experience them in 3-D.There are a lot of annoying pop-up ads but there is also some really good stuff here.
