- c Conversion of one form of energy into another. In sensation, the transforming of stimulus energies into neural impulses.
- d A membrane inside the cochlea which vibrates in response to sound and whose vibrations lead to activity in the auditory pathways.

- The theory that opposing retinal processes (red-green Christmas, yellow-blue Michigan, white-black) enable color vision.
- nerve cells in the brain that respond to specific features of the stimulus, such as shape, angle, or movement.

transparent part of the eye behind the iris; focuses light on the retina (accommodation); change shape to focus on objects;-if object is closed, muscles attach to the land contract to make lens around,-if object is far away, the muscles pull to flatten the lens
5 True/False questions
A ring of muscle tissue that forms the colored portion of the eye around the pupil and controls the size of the pupil opening.
priming → the activation, often unconsciously, of certain associations, thus predisposing one's perception, memory, or response.
visual receptor cells; located in retina; works best in bright light; responsible for viewing color; greatest density in the fovea
bottom-up processing → Starts with basic sensory information; transduction
absolute threshold → minimal amount of energy required to produce any sensation, 50 percent of the time
