place on the retina out where the optic nerve leaves the eye, no receptors (rods/cones) are located here
feature detectors → brain determines pitch by the place on the basilar membrane, works best for high pitch
top-down processing → The processing of several aspects of a problem simultaneously; the brain's natural mode of information processing for many functions, including vision, hearing
olfaction sense →
visual receptor cells; located in retina; works best in bright light; responsible for viewing color; greatest density in the fovea
