Organization and Interpretation

perception is
Perception is…
  • Our way of selecting, organizing, and interpreting our sensations.
  • Perception blends with Sensation into one continuous process to help us represent the world in our heads.
perceptual organization
Perceptual Organization
  • Gestalt
    • We organize our sensations into a whole rather than see it parts.
    • Necker Cube
    • Types of Perceptions: form, depth, motion, constancy.

Necker Cube

A simple 3D figure, but a complex arrangement of lines in 2D. The 3D interpretation prevails in perceptual organization.

  • Figure and ground
  • Grouping
form figure and ground
Form: Figure and Ground
  • Reversible, always organize the stimulus into a figure seen against a ground.
  • Figure - the object of interest
  • Ground - the background
form grouping
Form: Grouping
  • The perceived whole is different from it parts.
  • Helps us to construct a reality.
  • Factors that come into play when grouping:
    • Closeness (_____________________)
    • Sameness (_____________________)
    • Ongoing (_______________________)
    • Linked (_________________________)
    • Complete (______________________)
depth perception
Depth Perception
  • Two dimensional images are projected onto the retina.
  • DP is our ability to see things is three dimensions using depth cues:
    • Binocular cues
    • Monocular cues
depth perception binocular clues
Depth Perception:Binocular Clues
  • Eyes are ~2 1/2 inches apart.
    • Our eyes get different images of the world.
      • The larger the angle, the nearer the object.
      • See next slide
    • Convergence
    • Retinal Disparity
depth perception monocular cues
Depth Perception:Monocular Cues
  • We rely on these to gauge depth and distance.
    • Relative size
    • Interposition
    • Relative Clarity
    • Texture Gradient
    • Relative height
    • Relative motion
    • Linear perspective
    • Lights and shadows
  • Find an example of one of these now…..
    • Page 235 in textbook
  • Stroboscopic motion
  • Phi phenomenon
  • Motion after effect
perceptual constancy
Perceptual Constancy
  • Enables us to perceive an object as unchanging regardless of changes in the stimulus we receive.
  • Impt examples: Muller-Lyer; Ponzo
muller lyer illusion
Muller-Lyer Illusion
  • The top horizontal line looks longer because it also looks farther away.
  • The inward pointing arrows signify that the horizontal line is closest to you, and the outward pointing arrows signify the opposite case.
ponzo illusion
Ponzo Illusion
  • Converging lines indicate that top line is farther away than bottom line
what effects our perceptions
What effects our perceptions?
  • Deprivation
  • Adaptation
  • Set
    • Context
    • 10-11 exercise
    • Sine wave Speech
fraser spiral
Fraser Spiral
  • Critical period- that optimal time period after birth when certain events must take place for normal development.
  • Use it “soon” or lose it.
  • Cat example
  • We can become “biperceptual”
    • Bilinguals- can switch back to native/new language at will.
  • Adaptation is difficult at first, but can happen with no apparent recourse for previous perceptions.
perceptual set
Perceptual Set
  • A mental predisposition that influences what we perceive.
    • Influences include schemas, past experiences, stereotypes.
    • Context
      • Top-down influences our bottom-up.

Perceptual Set
  • Call out the number that follows each of these….
  • Pronounce the words that I am about to spell
  • Provide punctuation to make these words meaningful.
  • The telephone game.
  • Just for fun
