5 True/False Questions
opponent-process theory → created by Edward Hering; alternative theory used to explain after images; suggest that the retina contains three pairs color receptors or cones-yellow-blue, red-green, black-white; pairs work in opposition (thalamus)
size constancy → The number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time (for example, per second).
retina → the light-sensitive inner lining of the back of the eyeball; contains receptor cells (rods/cones)
perception → The sense of hearing.
Frequency theory → In hearing, the theory that the rate of nerve impulses traveling up the auditory nerve matches the frequency of a tone, thus enabling us to sense its pitch.
