A task in which the participant has to name the colours in which words are printed. (stroop effect)
The organization of the visual field into objects that stand out from their surroundings
Because they are uniform and linked, we perceive each set of two dots and the line between them as one unit
the ability to see objects in three dimensions although the images that strike the retina are two-dimensional; allows us to judge distance
Depth cues, such as retinal disparity and convergence, that depend on the use of two eyes
A binocluar cue for perceiving depth: By encompassing images from the two eybealls, the brain computes distance--the greater the disparity (difference) between the two images, the closer the object.
A binocular cue for perceiving depth; the extent to which the eyes converge inward when looking at an object
Depth cues, such as interposition and linear perspective, available to either eye alone
if we assume that two objects are similar in size, we perceive the one that casts the smaller retinal image as farther away
A depth cue in which one object partly covering another is assumed to be closer in distance.
because light from distant objects passes through more atmosphere we perceive hazy objects as farther away than sharp,clear objects
-A gradual change from a coarse, distinct texture to a fine, indistinct texture signals increasing distance
An illusion of movement created when two or more adjacent lights blink on and off in quick succession
perceiving objects as unchanging even as illumination and retinal images change
Brain perceives continuous movement in a rapid series of slightly varying images
in vision, the ability to adjust to an artificially displaced or even inverted visual field
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
Controversial claim that perception can occur apart from sensory input. Said to include telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition.
