5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. opponent-process theory
  2. Weber's law
  3. retina
  4. optic nerve
  5. sensory adaptation
  1. a light-sensitive inner surface of the eye, containing the receptor rods and cones and layers of neurons that begin processing of visual info
  2. b theory that opposing retinal processes enable color vision
  3. c diminished sesnitivty as a consequence of constant stimulation
  4. d nerve that carries neural impulses from eye to brain
  5. e principle that, to be percieved as diff., 2 stimuli must differ by constant minimum percentage

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. analysis that begins with the sensory receptors and works up to the brain's integration of sensory info
  2. point at which optic nerve leaves the eye, creating a "blind" spot b/c no receptor cells are located there
  3. the process of interpreting info received from our environment
  4. amount of energy in a light or sound wave, which we perceive as brightness or loudness determined by a wave's amplitude
  5. minimum stimulation needed to detect a particular stimulus 50% of the time

5 True/False questions

  1. top-down processingprocessing of aspects of a problem simultaneously; brain's natural mode of info processing for many functions including vision

          

  2. accomodationthe process by which our sensory receptors receive info from our environment

          

  3. wavelengthamount of energy in a light or sound wave, which we perceive as brightness or loudness determined by a wave's amplitude

          

  4. fovearetinal receptor cells near the center of the retina and function in daylight; detect fine detail and give rise to color sensations

          

  5. parallel processingprocessing of aspects of a problem simultaneously; brain's natural mode of info processing for many functions including vision
