  2. retinal disparity
  3. basilar membrane
  4. transduction
  5. Accommodation
  1. a Study of paranormal phenomena, including ESP and psychokinesis
  2. b binocular distance cue; based on the overlay of two retinal fields when both eyes focus on one object
  3. c Conversion of one form of energy into another. In sensation, the transforming of stimulus energies into neural impulses.
  4. d A membrane inside the cochlea which vibrates in response to sound and whose vibrations lead to activity in the auditory pathways.
  5. e Process by which the eye lens changes shape to focus near or far objects on the retina

5 Multiple choice questions

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

  4. Controversial claim that perception can occur apart from sensory input; telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition

  5. 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

  2. primingthe activation, often unconsciously, of certain associations, thus predisposing one's perception, memory, or response.


  3. fovea
    visual receptor cells; located in retina; works best in bright light; responsible for viewing color; greatest density in the fovea


  4. bottom-up processingStarts with basic sensory information; transduction


  5. absolute thresholdminimal amount of energy required to produce any sensation, 50 percent of the time
