The eye is one of the most important sensory organs to study and understand for the MCAT, as it has far reaching applications in biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology. In this webinar, we will cover the anatomy of the cell, from cell types to the unique action potentials of photoreceptors. The eye is a converging lens (think physics!) and can have a myriad of disorders that affect its ability to focus. We will also cover psychology visual process, or the route that sensory information takes from the eye to the brain.

On the MCAT
The eye and the ear are two of the most important sensory organs.
Questions about these two can appear in either of the science sections as well as the in the behavioral science section
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
