How to Play
Converting external energy to neural activity
Principle explaining how objects are perceived as whole
Intensity of light
More distant objects look smaller
Perceive an object as whole even if other objects cover part of it
Congenital disorder in which pain is not sensed or perceived
Detection of energy by sense organs
Reflex in which pupil dilates in dark
Theory of vision connecting complementary color pairs
Theory stating vision is based on three colors (Red, Blue, Green)
Lens changes shape to focus light
Smallest change in stimulus that can be detected
Five flavors
Construct the whole from expectations
Colored part of the eye
Attend to many senses at once
Energy that travels as vibrations
One ear perception
Color of light
Distant objects are higher
Relationship between stimulus and context
Focus in on one sensation
Perceive objects symmetrically arranged as wholes
Closer objects move faster than farther ones
Wave amplitude
Nerve endings that sense pain, general touch, and temperature
Detects basic shapes and forms, low light, and causes negative image after they are fatigued
