5 Matching questions

  1. opponent-process theory
  2. wavelength
  3. cochlea
  4. priming
  5. Herman von Helmholtz
  1. a created by Edward Hering; alternative theory used to explain after images; suggest that the retina contains three pairs color receptors or cones-yellow-blue, red-green, black-white; pairs work in opposition (thalamus)
  2. b The distance from the peak of one light or sound wave to the peak of the next. Electromagnetic wavelengths vary from longer/red, shorter/blue
  3. c snail-shaped structure in the inner ear; contains fluid that vibrate; attach the oval window and basilar membrane
  4. d Theorist who both aided in the development of the trichromatic theory of color perception and Place theory of pitch perception.
  5. e the activation, often unconsciously, of certain associations, thus predisposing one's perception, memory, or response.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. The sense of body movement and position, including the sense of balance.
  2. groups of cells located on the tongue that enable one to recognize different tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, salt)
  3. auditory experience corresponding to the frequency of sound vibrations, resulting in a higher or lower tone
  4. depth cues, such as interposition and linear perspective, available to either eye alone.
  5. The number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time (for example, per second).

5 True/False questions

  1. size constancythe perception of an object as the same size regardless of the distance from which it is viewed; example someone height

          

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

          

  3. selective attentionIn vision, the ability to adjust to an artificially displaced or even inverted visual field

          

  4. Gate-control theorybrain determines pitch by the place on the basilar membrane, works best for high pitch

          

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