- a visual messages/cues that require two eyes (retinal disparity, convergence)
- b The number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time (for example, per second).
- c groups of cells located on the tongue that enable one to recognize different tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, salt)
- d a device for converting sounds into electrical signals and stimulating the auditory nerve by electrodes threaded into the cochlea

5 Multiple choice questions
- A coiled, bony, fluid-filled tude in the inner ear through which sound waves trigger nerve impulses.
- Illusion of movement created when two or more adjacent lights blink on and off in quick succession
A ring of muscle tissue that forms the colored portion of the eye around the pupil and controls the size of the pupil opening.
- decreasing responsiveness with repeated stimulation. As infants gain familiarity with repeated exposure to a visual stimulus, their interest wanes and they look away sooner
- The principle that one sense may influence another, as when the smell of food influences its taste.
5 True/False questions
pitch → auditory experience corresponding to the frequency of sound vibrations, resulting in a higher or lower tone
kinesthesis → sense of muscle movement, posture, and strain on muscles/joints; provides information on speed and direction of movement; works with vestibular sense
wavelength → 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.
monocular cues → visual messages/cues that require two eyes (retinal disparity, convergence)
opponent process theory → In hearing, the theory that the rate of nerve impulses traveling up the auditory nerve matches the frequency of a tone, thus enabling us to sense its pitch.
