Wave frequency
Brain compares still shots
Colored part of the eye
Perceive objects symmetrically arranged as wholes
Lowest level of stimulus that can be detected
Relationship between stimulus and context
One ear perception
Texture gets clearer as objects get closer
Perception of how far away objects are in the environment
Detects colors/Sensative to detail/Require more light
