Visual Perception Quiz 2

Perception refers to the process by which

  • Sense organs transmit information to the brain for initial processing

  • Perception receptors gather information from the environment

  • The brain organises and interprets sensation

  • The brain selects which stimuli to respond to

Please make your selection

The two major processes occurring in the eye are

  • Selection and perception

  • Reception and transduction

  • Organisation and interpretation

  • Transduction and interpretation

Please make your selection

A person who loses sight in one eye could still perceive depth and distance by using the cues of

  • Interposition and relative size

  • Convergence and retinal disparity

  • Linear perspective and convergence

  • Texture gradient and retinal disparity


Please make your selection3

Please make your selection

Accommodation is

  • Is a binocular depth cue

  • Is possible because our eyes are 6 to 7cm apart

  • Enables an image to be sharply focused onto the retina

  • Enables our eyes to turn inwards to focus on an object

Imagine that you are in a museum. A statue is in the middle of the room. You walk around it and examine it from many places in the room. The retinal image of the statue changes, but you do not perceive the statue as changing.

This is known as

  • Convergence

  • Motion parallax

  • Interpositioning

  • Perceptual constancy


Please make your selection5

Please make your selection

Three types of perceptual constancy are:

  • size, texture and form

  • Form, shape and texture

  • Size, shape and brightness

  • Brightness, texture and form

Visual perception processes begin when _____ energy is changed into _____ energy.

  • chemical; electromagnetic

  • Electromagnetic; electrochemical

  • Electromagnetic; chemical

  • Electrochemical; electromagnetic

In the visual perception process, which of the following occurs first?

  • Selection

  • Reception

  • Transmission

  • Feature detection


Please make your selection8

Please make your selection

In visual perception, the process of transduction takes place in

  • Lens

  • Pupil

  • Occipital lobe

  • photoreceptors


Please make your selection9

Please make your selection

If you move an object closer to the viewer

  • It has little or no effect on the viewer’s perception of the object’s size

  • It causes the viewer to perceive the object as getting bigger

  • It changes the viewer’s perception of the object’s shape

  • It decreases the size of the retinal image of the object

The pattern on solider’s uniforms is designed to assist camouflage in a jungle. The camouflage occurs because

  • The principle of figure-ground is applied

  • The principle of proximity is applied

  • The principle of figure-ground is not applied

  • The principle of proximity is not applied

Jemima has had an operation on one eye and has to wear a protective patch. She will probably have some difficulty perceiving the distance of objects because she cannot use

  • Retinal disparity

  • Accommodation

  • Gestalt principles

  • Pictorial cues

Visual acuity is greatest

  • In the fovea where there are only rods

  • In the fovea where there are only cones

  • In the area of the retina where there are equal numbers of rods and cones

  • In the area of the retina where the optic nerve attaches

The process of converting one kind of energy to another by cells in the eye is called

  • Feature detection

  • Perceptual organisation

  • Transmission

  • Transduction

An open drawer is perceived as having the same shape when seen from the front, the side, or from above. This is an example of

  • Perceptual constancy

  • Perceptual set

  • Similarity

  • Visual illusion

Visual reception involves the

  • Delivery of the visual information to the appropriate lobe for interpretation

  • Detection of light by the photoreceptors on the retina

  • Transmission of a visual image to the brain

  • Interpretation of the visual information in the brain

Luisa woke at night in her darkened room. At first she could not see anything, but after a few minutes, due to the _____ in her eyes, she could see the shape of her dressing gown hanging on the door.

Mark is hanging his red shirt, blue shirt and white shirt outside in the sun. Suddenly the sun is covered by a large, dark cloud.

The statement that best describes the effect on Mark’s visual perception is

  • The red and blue shirts appear dimmer than the white shirt

  • The red and white shirts appear brighter than the blue shirt

  • All three shirts appear as bright as they did previously
