inability to read
inability to write
angular gyrus
connects the visual projection area with the auditory and visual association area in the temporal parietal lobes
impairment of reading
planum temporale
where Wernicke's area is located, larger in the left temporal lobe than the right, more equal or larger on the right in dyslexics
visual -perceptual
most familiar symptoms of dyslexia . the person reads words backwards.
frequency is to pitch as
intensity is to loudness
sequence of sound travel in the inner ear is
eardrum, ossicles, oval window, basilar membrane
adequate stimulus
energy form for which a receptor is specialized
pressure on the eye and light in the eye give us the same response because
they both activate visual receptors and the visual cortex
basilar membrane
in the cochlea, organ of Corti is located here
using both ears
place analysis depends on physical characteristics of the
basilar membrane
broca's aphasia
language impairment due to damage on broca's area
which theory would be damaged by saying that nuerons fire at different rates?
problem with place theory....
the basilar mebrane vibrates the same at low freq
analyzes sound, it's like a snail
coincidence detectors
neurons fire most when both ears hear at the same time, helps with sound localization
place theory
identifying the frequency of the sound depends on the location of vibration on the basilar membrane, and which neurons are firing most
basilar membrane vibrates the same at....
low frequencies
