A system in which many steps are going on simultaneously.
A system in which only one step happens at a time (and so the steps occur in a series).
The problem of reuniting the various elements of a scene, given that these elements are initially dealt with by different systems in the brain.
A pattern of firing by neurons in which neurons in one brain area fire at the same time as neurons in another area indicating that they respond to the same stimulus.
An error in perception usually due to attention's oveload in which a person correctly perceives what features are present but misperceives how the features are joined.
Drawings that can be readily perceived in more than one way.
The processing step in which the perceiver determines which aspects of the stimulus belong to the central object and which aspects belong to the background.
A number of rules that seem to govern observers' organization of visual input, grouping some elements together but perceiving other elements to be independent of one another.
The constituents of a visual pattern - vertical lines, curves, diagonals, and so on - that, together, form the overall pattern.
The achievement of perceiving the constant properties of objects despite changes in the sensory information due to changes in our viewing circumstances.
The achievement of perceiving the constant size of objects despite changes in the size of the retinal image due to variations in viewing distance.
The achievement of perceiving the constant shape of objects despite changes in the shape of the retinal image due to variations in viewing angle.
The achievement of perceiving the constant brightness of objects despite changes in the light reaching the eye due to variations in illumination.
The hypothesized steps that perceivers follow to take one aspect of the visual scene (e.g., viewing distance) into account in judging another aspect (e.g., size).
Information available that allows the perceiver to judge an object's position.
A distance cue based on the differences between the two eyes' views of the world. This difference becomes less pronounced the farther away an object is from the observer.
Features of the visual stimulus that indicate distance even if the stimulus is viewed with only one eye.
Monocular Distance Cues
Patterns that can be represented on a flat surface to create the sense of a threedimensional object or scene.
A monocular distance cue that relies on the fact that objects farther away are blocked from view by closer objects that happen to be in the viewer's line of sight.
A cue for distance based on the fact that parallel lines seem to converge as they get farther away from the viewer.
A distance cue based on the fact that as an observer moves, the retinal images of nearby objects move more rapidly than of objects farther away.
The pattern of change in the retinal image in which the image grows larger as the viewer approaches an object and shrinks as the viewer retreats from it.
