  2. opponent-process theory
  3. wavelength
  4. priming
  5. perception
  1. a retinal receptor cells near the center of the retina and function in daylight; detect fine detail and give rise to color sensations
  2. b distance from the peak of one light or sound wave to the peak of the next
  3. c activation usually unconsciously of certain associations, predisposing on'es perception, memory or response
  4. d theory that opposing retinal processes enable color vision
  5. e the process of interpreting info received from our environment

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. info processing guided by higher-level mental processes; construct perceptions and experience expectations
  2. retinal recpetors that detect black, white and gray; necessary for peripheral and twilight vision when cones don't respond
  3. below one's absolute threshold for conscious awareness
  4. nerve that carries neural impulses from eye to brain
  5. central focal pt. in retina, around which eye's cones cluster

5 True/False questions

  1. Weber's lawprinciple that, to be percieved as diff., 2 stimuli must differ by constant minimum percentage


  2. feature detectorsminimum stimulation needed to detect a particular stimulus 50% of the time


  3. difference thresholdminimum diff. b/w 2 stimuli required for detection 50% of the time


  4. bottom-up processinganalysis that begins with the sensory receptors and works up to the brain's integration of sensory info


  5. sensationthe process by which our sensory receptors receive info from our environment
