Document Summary

Part 2: learning about the world around us. We receive information about the world through various sensory modalities (we hear things, we smell things, we feel things, and we see things) For humans, though, vision is the dominant sense: this is reflected in how much brain area is devoted to vision than that devoted to the other senses. If visual information does not match with the information coming from our other senses, trust is usually placed in our vision: this is the basis of ventriloquism: in which we see the dummy"s dummy"s master. Vision wins out in this contest, and so we experience mouth moving while the sounds themselves are coming from the.

Without this recognition it would be impossible to merge the information learned with previous knowledge.
