Sensation and Perception 2 Sensation and Perception 2 Presentation Transcript

  • Sensation and Perception
  • Sensation
    • is the process whereby stimulation of the receptor cells in the sense organs results in a neural impulse to the brain.
    • Perception
    • is the brain’s interpretation of this sensory information.
    • The process of interpreting sensation to make them a meaningful experience
  •  
  •  
  • Difference threshold
    • is the average of the two differences between the comparison stimuli and the standard.
  • Brain Areas Interpreting Sensation
  • Perception
    • is the result of stimulation; an understanding of the nature of objects, their position, shape, size, distance, smell, taste, texture and even their meaning.
    • It entails the organization, interpretation, elaboration, and understanding of this sensory information.
    • Perception - involves your reaction to incoming stimuli.
  • VISUAL PERCEPTUAL SYSTEM
    • Major Functions :
    • Localization –
    • Determining where object are. In order to locate, we first have to separate objects from one another.
    • Figure-Ground Organization
  • FIGURE AND GROUND
  • Gestalt Principles of Grouping Connectedness Common Fate
  • Proximity
    • tells us that when objects near each other they tend to be seen as a group or a unit,
    • Similarity
    • tells us that when objects having similar characteristics tend to be seen as a group.
    • Good Continuation
    • is when o bjects arranged in either a straight line or a curve tends to be perceived as a group.
    • Closure
    • is that even if a figure has a gap, we tend to perceive as a closed, complete figure.
  • Connectedness
    • is when objects are uniform and linked together, we perceive them as a single unit.
    • Common Fate
    • is when objects move in the same direction, we tend to se then as a single unit.
  • Depth Perception
    • is an understanding of how far an object is from us by converting two-dimensional information into three dimensions.
    • It tells us which objects are closer or farther away from us.
    • Perception of depth is aided by certain “depth cues.”
  • There are two types of depth cues:
    • monocular or pictorial cues , and another is binocular cues.
    • Monocular or Pictorial Cues are perceivable even by using only one eye.
  • Under monocular cues, there are also eight kinds:
    • relative size is seen among similar objects that differ in size; we interpret smaller objects as being farther away;
    • superposition is when an object obstructs the view of another, we perceive the overlapping object as nearer;
  • (3) height in field
    • is looking at the horizon, objects that appear higher are perceived to be farther;
    • (4) linear perspective
    • is when parallel lines appear converge, they are perceived to be vanishing in the distance;
    • (5) texture gradient
    • is a gradual change from a coarse, distinct texture to a fine indistinct texture signals increasing distance and objects far away appear smaller and more densely packed;
  • (6) relative clarity
    • is seen because light from distant objects passes through more atmospheres, we can perceive hazy objects as farther away than sharp, clear objects;
    • (7) light and shadow
    • is when nearby objects reflect light to our eyes, thus, given two identical objects, the dimmer one seems farther away, and shading, too, produces a sense of depth consistent with the assumed light source;
  • (8) motion parallax
    • is when traveling, nearer objects seem to move quicker as compared to farther objects.
  • Relative Size Superposition Height in Field Linear Perspective
  • Assignment: Perception
    • Using your camera/digital phone, capture 5 examples showing 5 out of the 8 different monocular cues, then have it developed or printed in wallet sizes (2R). Paste it in the space provided then write below each picture when and where the picture was taken. Create a title for each picture just like the pictures seen in a photo gallery/exhibit. (Feb. 4 – submission)

    • B. Auditory perception
    • Sound localization or perception of sound direction is dependent on the properties of the sound source and separation of the two ears.
    • Binaural clues
    • 1. Time difference – sound waves arriving at one side of the ear is detected as coming from that direction.
    • 2. Intensity difference – sounds are more intense in one direction as perceived as coming from that direction.
    • 3. Phase difference – pressure of the sound wave at any part ,place or movement. People move their heads to try to judge direction of sound.
    • 4. Learning experiences - we turn towards the sound familiar to us.
    • 5. Echoes and distortion in an enclosed place familiar to us.
    • C. Tactual perception
    • Local signs or (signs of location) allow us to make appropriate responses to corresponding stimuli. Local signs arise through learning.
    • D. Olfactory and Gustatory perception
    • Pressure, temperature, pain altogether produce the taste in a food / drink . We commonly confuse taste when it is smell that works to identify it.
    • Note: Sensitivity of the taste varies according to point of application and temperature of the substances .
    • Errors of perception
    • 1 . Illusion – impression from experience which does not correctly represent the objective situation outside the observer. It may be used to denote error in immediate perception and in meaning.
    • 2. Hallucination – impressions of sensory vividness arising from inner , mental factor.
    • Alucinatio – latin term ( to dream, to talk idly, to wander mentally ).
    • E.g. Schizophrenics and manic depressives (constrcuct a fantasy world to suit his own emotional conflict with reality).
    • 3. Delusion – false belief organized from both perception and memory. An individual may mistake his own identity or misinterpret the actions of others.
    • Extra sensory perception
    • Perception without the mediation of the senses.
    • 1. Telepathy – thought transmission from one mind to another.
    • 2. Clairvoyance – extrasensory awareness of objects.
    • 3. Precognition – foreknowledge of specific events without any rational means .
    • 4. Psychokinesis – mind over matter – mental operations that influences a material body or an energy system.
  • Assignment: C ONSCIOUNESS AND ITS ALTERED STATES
    • Try to remember one of your most vivid/significant dreams then write a short story about it like who are the people in your dream and what it is about. Search several books or the internet and write its interpretation in the activity sheet given. Also write the source of where you got the interpretation of your dreams.
    • Your Dream
    • Interpretation - Source
  • Consciousness
    • A stream of ever changing flow of awareness. It is a state or the quality of being aware of internal thought processes or of external objects, states or facts.
    • Two Divisions of Consciousness:
    • Waking State of Consciousness –
    • 1. includes a mixture of sensations from the outside world, sensations from the body, memories of the past, thoughts, feelings, perceptions and images, and expectations about the future that occur when we are awake and reasonably alert. However, it may be selective of the stimuli that are attended to.
    • 2. Altered State of Consciousness (ACS) – A radical deviation from the overall pattern of functioning of the mind during ordinary waking state of consciousness such that a new, overall pattern is superimposed on one’s experience.
  • Kinds of Altered States of Consciousness
    • Sleep
    • Sleep consists of five stages that involve different levels of awareness, consciousness, and responsiveness.
    • Stages of Sleep [as suggested by the quality of brainwaves displayed by an apparatus
    • called, electroencephalograph (EEG) ]
  •  
  • Sleep Disorders
    • Insomnia –
    • characterized by difficulty in falling asleep, frequent nighttime awakenings, waking too early, or any combination of these
    • Narcolepsy –
    • an uncontrollable tendency to fall asleep, usually lasting for less than five minutes
  • Sleep Apnea –
    • breathing difficulty or even cessation of breathing while the person is asleep. Breathing may stop from 20 seconds to 2 minutes. The sleeper has to wake up several times throughout the night to gulp for air, but may not be aware of it.
    • Night Terrors –
    • the person might sit up or walk around, talk incoherently, experience a doubling of heart and breathing rates, and appear terrified. The night-terror sufferer seldom wakes up fully during the episode and recalls little or nothing the next morning – at most, a fleeting, frightening
  • Sleepwalking (somniloquy) and Sleep talking (somnambulism)
    • – these are more common in children than adults. Children generally have no memory of such events, usually do not require treatment, and usually outgrow the disorder
