General Principles of Perception
Sensation vs. Perception
Sensation: bringing the actual physical message
Perception: how to recognize and process the actual message
Law of specific nerve energies
How does light stimuli reach us?
Inversion of light
Cornea --> pupil --> lens --> retina
First, we have light energy reflected into model
As its being reflected, it makes it ways to your eyes
As it enters your eyes, first thing is an inversion to eyes
Light flipped upside down
Light hits pupil, travels to retina
Pupil: an adjustable opening that widens or narrows to
control the amount of light entering the eye
Cornea and lens focus light on retina
Cornea: a rigid transparent structure on the
surface of the eyeball
Lens: a flexible structure that varies in
thickness, enables the eye to accommodate ( to
adjust its focus for objects at different distances)
Retina: a layer of visual receptors covering the
back surface of the eyeball
Energy will converge into optic nerve
Optic nerve will go to each side of brain

Document Summary

What"s a good argument for whether behavior is more genetic. Perception: how to recognize and process the actual message. Cornea --> pupil --> lens --> retina. First, we have light energy reflected into model. As its being reflected, it makes it ways to your eyes. As it enters your eyes, first thing is an inversion to eyes. Pupil: an adjustable opening that widens or narrows to control the amount of light entering the eye. Cornea and lens focus light on retina. Cornea: a rigid transparent structure on the surface of the eyeball. Lens: a flexible structure that varies in thickness, enables the eye to accommodate ( to adjust its focus for objects at different distances) Retina: a layer of visual receptors covering the back surface of the eyeball. Optic nerve will go to each side of brain. Optic nerve: set of ganglion axons cells the turnaround and exit the eye.
