Psychology Lecture 16
Depth perception, size constancy, perceptual problem solving
How do we perceive depth?
What happens after we determine object distance?
How do we figure out what we’re looking at?
o Importance of expectation and context
See a word and then a picture with 2 meanings, you see the image relating to
o Binocular versus monocular cues
Two eyes vs. one eye in use
Distance shown in each eye is not the same

The more complete image is closest to you
Lines converge to a vanishing point
Where the lines come together, converge, is the farthest point
Density of images in front of you
