6 Multiple Choice Questions
- the tendency for vision to dominate the other senses
- perceiving objects as unchanging (having consistent lightness, color, shape, and size) even as illumination and retinal images change.
- depth cues, such as retinal disparity and convergence, that depend on the use of two eyes.
- the controversial claim that perception can occur apart from sensory input. Said to include telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition.
- in vision, the ability to adjust to an artificially displaced or even inverted visual field.
- depth cues, such as interposition and linear perspective, available to either eye alone.
6 True/False Questions
selective attention → the ability to see objects in three dimensions although the images that strike the retina are two-dimensional; allows us to judge distance.
visual cliff → a laboratory device for testing depth perception in infants and young animals.
inattentional blindness → a binocular cue for perceiving depth: By comparing images from the two eyeballs, the brain computes distance—the greater the disparity (difference) between the two images, the closer the object.
figure ground → the perceptual tendency to organize stimuli into coherent groups
perceptual set → a mental predisposition to perceive one thing and not another.
human factors psychology → a branch of psychology that explores how people and machines interact and how machines and physical environments can be made safe and easy to use.
