After arriving at the Arbor at 1:30 on Wednesday, April 2nd, Shelly Kruk and Brenda Albertson made a brief presentation over how and why we study perception. Following that the students interacted with individual residents. They measured central acuity, peripheral acuity,color vision, depth perception, and smell identification. The students also discussed these perceptual abilities, showed additional demonstrations, and had fun visiting with the residents.
Aaron Aiza and Brenda Albertson test Mr. Hallman's peripheral acuity.

By using a yarn matching task, Shelly Kruk and Kelly Taylor test Mrs. Alders' color vision.
