  5. sensory adaptation
  1. a central focal pt. in retina, around which eye's cones cluster
  2. b point at which optic nerve leaves the eye, creating a "blind" spot b/c no receptor cells are located there
  3. c principle that, to be percieved as diff., 2 stimuli must differ by constant minimum percentage
  4. d diminished sesnitivty as a consequence of constant stimulation
