Science, Maths & Technology 

BSc (Honours) Natural Sciences (Physics)

You will need a computer with internet access to study for this qualification. For most OU qualifications a Microsoft Windows (new since 2007), Apple Mac (OS X 10.6 or later) or Linux computer should be adequate. However, some qualifications require more specific IT equipment, in which case you will need additional software to use an Apple Mac or Linux computer. A detailed technical specification for your modules will be made available when you register. Please note, technical specifications do change over time to match computer developments and the way we teach.

Signals and perception: the science of the senses free course icon Level

Health, Sports & Psychology 

Signals and perception: the science of the senses

This sensory neuroscience module uses fundamental concepts from biology, chemistry, physics and psychology to explain how we interact with our environment through the senses and is therefore an opportunity for you to study an interdisciplinary topic. For each of the senses, you'll investigate how sensation begins with a stimulus that is converted into an electrical impulse; how that is transmitted to the brain; and how the brain combines these messages ? to arrive at a 'perception of the stimulus'. The module is designed to be accessible to students pursuing a wide variety of degree studies.
