Document Summary

Sensation (psychophysics): registering info: transduction, sensory receptors, absolute threshold. Just noticeable difference (jnd: we(cid:271)er"s law, caveat: sensory adaptation, signal detection theory, physiological sensitivity, attention: binding, filter (bottleneck) theory, cocktail party effect, change blindness. Vision/audition: stimuli via waves (lightwaves/soundwaves, wavelength, amplitude, frequency. Vision: vision process: cornea pupil lens retina optic nerve, tricromatic theory, opponent process theory: black/white red/green blue/yellow, vision problems, myopia, hyperopia, visual agnosia. Audition: audition process: pinna auditory canal eardrum cochlea auditory nerve, place theory, frequency theory, audio problems, nerve deafness, conduction deafness. Perception: interpreting info: processing, bottom-up, top-down, parallel, perceptual hypothesis, (cid:862)e(cid:272)o(cid:374)o(cid:373)ize(cid:863) se(cid:374)sory, perceptual sets, context effect, perceptual constancy, shape, size, brightness, perceptual organization, gestalt principle, proximity, similarity, continuity, closure, symmetry, figure-ground, depth perception (3d, monocular depth cues, relative size. Linear perspective: texture gradient, height in plane. Light/shadow: binocular depth cues, retinal disparity, binocular convergence, motion perception, phi phenomenon (wertheimer) Altered state of consciousness: sleeping, circadian rhythms, cyclical, disruptions.
