- taste buds
- a visual receptor cell; located in retina; respond to varying degrees of light and dark; responsible for night vision and peripheral vision
- b created by Hermann von Helmholtz; theory of color vision based on additive color mixing; suggest that the retina contains three types of color receptors, cones: red, green, blue
- c groups of cells located on the tongue that enable one to recognize different tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, salt)
- d A membrane inside the cochlea which vibrates in response to sound and whose vibrations lead to activity in the auditory pathways.
- e The chamber between the eardrum and cochlea containing three tiny bones (Hammer, Anvil, and Stirrup) that concentrate the vibrations (conduction) of the eardrum on the cochlea's oval window.
5 Multiple choice questions
- Laboratory device for testing depth perception in infants and young animals
- The number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time (for example, per second).
- Perceiving familiar objects as having consistent color, even if changing illumination alters the wave-lengths reflected by the object
- the mental process of sorting, identifying, and arranging raw sensory data into meaningful patterns
- the raw data of experience; sensory stimulation; example are eyes only register light energy and ears only register wave energy
5 True/False questions
transduction → Conversion of one form of energy into another. In sensation, the transforming of stimulus energies into neural impulses.
opponent process theory → The theory that opposing retinal processes (red-green Christmas, yellow-blue Michigan, white-black) enable color vision.
blind spot →
place on the retina out where the optic nerve leaves the eye, no receptors (rods/cones) are located here
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
fovea → The central focal point in the retina, around which the eye's cones cluster.
