DefinitionTerm
neurons that respond selectively to very specific features of more complex stimuli
a readiness to perceive a stimulus in a particular way
runs the length of the spiraled cochlea and holds the auditory receptors, called hair cells
a transparent eye structure that focuses the light rays falling on the retina
the neural tissue lining the inside back surface of the eye; it absorbs light, processes image, and sends visual information to the brain
a tiny spot in the center of the retina that contains only cones; visual acuity is greatest at this spot
the process in which the eyes become less sensitive to light in high illumination
a progression from the whole to the elements
the illusion of movement created by presenting visual stimuli in rapid succesion
a drawing that is compatible with two different interpretations that can shift back and forth
type of color mixture that works by superimposing lights, putting more light in the mixture than exists in any one light by itself
a progression from individual elements to the whole
the opening in the center of the iris that helps regulate the amount of light passing into the rear chamber of the eye
retinal area that, when stimulated, affects the firing of that cell
clues about distance based on the image in either eye alone
a fluid-filled, coiled tunnel that contains the receptors for hearing
pairs of colors that produce gray tones when mixed together
type of color mixture that works by removing some wavelengths of light, leaving less light than was originally there
DefinitionTerm
a gradual decline in sensitivity to prolonged stimulation
the process in which the eyes become more sensitive to light in low illumination
visual problem in which distant objects are seen clearly but close objects appear blurry
sensory system for smell
cues about distance that can be given in a flat picture
deficiency in the ability to distinguish among colors
a tendency to experience a stable perception in the face of continually changing sensory input
principle binocular depth cue that refers to the fact that objects within 25 feet project images to slightly different locations on the right and left retinas, so the right and lef
involves an apparently inexplicable discrepancy between the appearance of a visual stimulus and its physical reality
objects that can be represented in two-dimensional pictures but cannot exist in three-dimensional space
visual problem in which close objects are seen clearly but distant objects appear blurry
specialized visual receptors that play a key role in night vision and peripheral vision
clues about distance based on the differing views between the two eyes
a visual image that persists after a stimulus is removed
the process of detecting specific elements in visual input and assembling them into a more complex form
sensory system for taste
involves interpretation of visual cues that indicate how near or far away objects are
specialized visual receptors that play a key role in daylight vision and color vision
