Gestalt On the board draw an image that demonstrates one of the Gestalt principles. Each person should draw one. Proximity Similarity Closure Continuity Connectedness
Depth perception The ability to estimate the distance of an object from us. Visual cliff—inborn or learned?
Binocular cues Binocular: two eyes Retinal disparity (2.5” apart) Stereopsis (overlapping 2 images into 1) Convergence (eye muscle strain)
Perceptual constancy Objects are unchanging, regardless of changing stimuli (light, placement, etc.) Shape, location, brightness, & size
Perceptual Adaptation Anything that adjusts what you sense requires adjustment in your perception (e.g. new glasses = disorientation for a day). You can adapt to anything, even inverted sight, with enough time.
Perceptual Set Experiences, assumptions, and expectations influence what we perceive.
Explain How is your perceptual set related to perceptual constancy?
