For this assignment, you are required to write a short paper discussing the impact culture has on visual perception; specifically on visual illusions and why some of them (such as the Muller-Lyer Illusion) are not present in certain cultures.
Your short paper should address the following elements:
a) cultural influence on cognitive abilities or strategies (from a broad perspective),
b) specific cultural influences that may be related to a group’s susceptibility to the illusion. Feel free to focus on a specific cultural group, and
c) must contain the description of at least one research study that investigates and demonstrates the impact of culture on the specific cultural group you have focused on.


You must use at least 3 credible sources. If needed, visit the Albizu Library Database Index. For the selection of your source, use PsycINFO or PsycARICLES. Your articles MUST be:

Peer Reviewed ((a) limit your search to “peer-reviewed” and (b) check to see that the journal itself is peer reviewed by looking at their website-it will always be noted)
The articles MUST be of standard length (do not use a brief report or an abstract)
At least one (2) of the articles MUST contain a research study that was conducted (e.g. have Methods and Results sections)
DO NOT use Wikipedia or blogs as sources

You will upload the paper as a Word document or PDF to Blackboard for grading and feedback. Once the submissions are graded, you will be able to review the feedback provided to you in the grading rubric. Your short paper must be 2–3 pages in length (this does not include the cover page and the reference page). It should be written in 12-point Times New Roman font, with one-inch margins. All sources used must follow APA citation and reference format.
