  • Visual Sensation And Visual Perception
    1,667 words
    Visual sensation and visual perception are the processes by which we see and understand our surroundings. The difference between these processes and the dividing line where sensation ends and perception begins is debatable, however some distinctions can be made. Sensation is a physiological function, and begins with reception, when the cornea and lens of the eye focus light on the photoreceptors (rods and cones) in the retina of the eye. After this, transduction occurs, transforming stimulus ene...
  • Distinctions Between Visual Sensation And Visual Perception
    1,552 words
    Visual sensation differs from visual perception even though the two processes form a sequence. Our brain obtains meaning from what we look at through the process of sensation and perception (Grivas Down & Carter pg 77). Though the two systems interact they both serve a different purpose. Sensation is a physiological process which involves the " reception and transduction of information and its transmission to the brain". (Grivas Down & Carter pg 77). In other words sensation involves collecting ...
  • Our Interpretations Of Two Dimensional Images
    433 words
    Problem: Does gender influence how people view optical illusions? Background: The brain takes cues from images received from the eyes to help it interpret what is being seen. Usually this is important for things like depth perception, but occasionally it leads us astray. The cues make us think we see something that isn't true, or isn't even there. Light waves enter your eye and then enter photo receptive cells on your retina. The image that forms on your retina is flat, but you see a world of sh...
  • Figure Ground Perception

    Visual perception and visual sensation are both interactive processes, although there is a significant difference between the two processes. Sensation is defined as the stimulation of sense organs Visual sensation is a physiological process which means that it is the same for everyone. We absorb energy such as electro magnetic energy (light) or sound waves by sensory organs such as eyes. This energy is then transducer into electro chemical energy by the cones and rods (receptor cells) in the ret...
  • Infants Depth Perception

    Are parents ready to red shirt there children? No, I'm not talking about sports but kindergarten. Many parents are facing the issue of whether or not their children are ready for the big step into the classroom. Before entering kindergarten children need to develop their perceptual skill (depth perception). As humans we need depth perception for detection, discrimination, and identification of objects. Depth perception is a difficult topic to access due to the fact that the world is three dimens...
  • Optical Illusions And Other False Visual Perceptions
    612 words
    Senseless: A False Sense of Perception I feel as though I have no choice but to be a skeptic about our ability to know the world on the sense experience given the information that is being presented. Our senses are touching, hearing, smelling and tasting, I believe it is quite possible that a person could think they see, touch, and smell something such as a glass of bear but there be no glass of beer present, therefore their perception of this glass of beer is false. There is a good possibility ...
