5 Matching questions

  1. frequency
  2. taste buds
  3. binocular cues
  4. cochlear implant
  5. David Hubel - Torsten Wiesel
  1. a visual messages/cues that require two eyes (retinal disparity, convergence)
  2. b The number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time (for example, per second).
  3. c groups of cells located on the tongue that enable one to recognize different tastes (sweet, sour, bitter, salt)
  4. d a device for converting sounds into electrical signals and stimulating the auditory nerve by electrodes threaded into the cochlea
  5. e discovered feature detector groups of neurons in the visual cortex that respond to different types of visual images

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A coiled, bony, fluid-filled tude in the inner ear through which sound waves trigger nerve impulses.
  2. Illusion of movement created when two or more adjacent lights blink on and off in quick succession

  3. A ring of muscle tissue that forms the colored portion of the eye around the pupil and controls the size of the pupil opening.
  4. decreasing responsiveness with repeated stimulation. As infants gain familiarity with repeated exposure to a visual stimulus, their interest wanes and they look away sooner
  5. The principle that one sense may influence another, as when the smell of food influences its taste.

5 True/False questions

  1. pitchauditory experience corresponding to the frequency of sound vibrations, resulting in a higher or lower tone


  2. kinesthesissense of muscle movement, posture, and strain on muscles/joints; provides information on speed and direction of movement; works with vestibular sense


  3. wavelengthThe 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.


  4. monocular cuesvisual messages/cues that require two eyes (retinal disparity, convergence)


  5. opponent process theoryIn 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.
