This is the procedure for Ganel's experiment that is described in the text. The results of Ganel's experiment show that:
a. There is a clear dissociation between action and perception.
The dorsal processing stream is used for:
This video describes Nancy Kanwisher's research on modularity and some practical applications of this research. The Swiss Army Knife analogy is used to suggest that:
The brain has many different specialized areas with different purposes
What did Dr. Kanwisher's research discover that has to do with autism?
They found a part of the brain that is active when you think about what another person is thinking.
this video provides a description of the research involving thought control of Marilyn Monroe and Josh Brolin neurons. This film shows a number of trials in that experiment. What does the clicking in the video indicate?
That neurons are firing.
sherri is processing lab data on the locations of retinal activations in the brain. She notes that even though the fovea accounts for only 0.01 percent of the retina's area, signals from the fovea account for 8 to 10 percent of the retinotopic map on the cortex. This apportioning to the small fovea of a large area on the cortex is known as _____.
jake is undergoing a(n) ____, which takes advantage of the fact that blood flow increases in areas of the brain that are activated; specifically, hemoglobin carrying oxygen in the blood contains a ferrous (iron) molecule and therefore has magnetic properties.
Sarah is collaborating on an experiment in her an anatomy and physiology class. She and her partners lower electrodes into a cat's cortex. They place the electrodes perpendicular to the cat's cortex and every neuron they encounter has its receptive field at about the same location on the retina. This is a replication of an experiment demonstrating that the striate cortex is organized into _____.
amelie looks at a tree, which is imaged on the retina. The representation of the tree in the visual cortex is contained in the firings of neurons in separate cortical columns. The information in these separated columns is combined in the cortex to create our perception of the tree. These columns work together to cover the entire visual field, which is an effect called _____.
Carter is training rats to run through a maze to get food. He then removes part of the rat's brain and runs them through the maze again to see if they can still reach the food. What procedure did Carter use on the rats?
Maria is testing the behavior of monkeys. First, she shows the monkey a rectangle. Then she shows the monkey a rectangle and a cylinder. If the monkey pushes aside the rectangle, Maria gives the monkey a food reward. Which term describes this type of experiment?
Maria is testing the behavior of monkeys. First, she shows the monkey a rectangle. Then she shows the monkey a rectangle and a cylinder. If the monkey pushes aside the rectangle, Maria gives the monkey a food reward. In the second part of the experiment, Maria removes part of the monkey's brain, after which this problem was very difficult for the monkey. What part of the monkey's brain was removed?
Some of the signals leaving the IT cortex reach structures in the _____ lobe that are extremely important for memory.
Which area of the brain is associated with the processing of facial reactions that indicate emotions as well as familiar faces?
Kim is looking down at her hands. Which specialized area of the cortex is being activated?
extrastriate body area
