PSYC 111: Intro Psych

Sensation and Perception


I what s the difference sensation transduction perception binding

I. What’s the difference? - sensation - transduction - perception - binding


Ii psychophysics

II. Psychophysics

  • The Absolute Threshold

  • The Difference Threshold – JND and the Weber Fraction


Iii the theory of signal detection

III. The Theory of Signal Detection

  • Discriminability (sensitivity, or d’)

  • Bias (criterion, or b )


Iii vision basics let there be light

III. VISION BASICS – Let there be light!

Wavelength – color

Intensity – brightness

Purity – saturation


Capturing light

Capturing Light

  • The Eye is like a camera

    • Shutter

    • Lens

    • Film

    • Pupil - dilation

    • Lens - accommodation

    • Retina - transduction


Transduction the retina

Transduction – the retina

Rods and cones


Brain of bust

Brain of Bust!
