About this unit

AAMC Foundational Concept 6: Biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors influence the ways that individuals perceive, think about, and react to the world.

The way in which we sense, perceive, think about, and react to stimuli affects our experiences. Foundational Concept 6 focuses on these components of experience, starting with the initial detection and perception of stimuli through cognition, and continuing to emotion and stress.

With these building blocks, medical students will be able to learn about the ways in which cognitive and perceptual processes influence their understanding of health and illness.
