How to Play
Attend to many senses at once
Five flavors
More distant objects look smaller
Detects basic shapes and forms, low light, and causes negative image after they are fatigued
Objects cast shadows
Images that can be perceived in multiple ways
Construct the whole from expectations
Membrane in the back of the eye
Perceive object the same way across different conditions
Mixing senses across brain areas
Lens changes shape to focus light
Phenomenon in which motion is perceived when no motion is occuring
Principle explaining how objects are perceived as whole
Closer objects block farther objects
Wave amplitude
Central part of the retina responsible for acuity
Covers iris and pupil/Bends light to retina
Similar stimuli grouped together
Energy that travels as vibrations
Two ear perception
Brain compares still shots
Objects close together perceived as unified wholes
Have axons connecting retina to brain
