  • Q1
    Parallel Processing is
    time-consuming and difficult, but the brain is working on separate tracks of taking in visual information and perceiving information.
    brain's ability of separating different aspect of visual information when sensed and then being able to integrate these separate aspects back together to perceive the visual image.
    the brain's ability to process and understand information in the retina and then send the perceived image to the visual cortex.
    the ability to sense different sensory input ( and hearing) at the same time.
  • Q2
    Young-Helmholtz Trichromatic (Three-color) Theory of color vision
    supports the afterimage effect of when someone stares at a yellow and green image, and then look away and sees blue and red in an afterimage, rather than yellow and green.
    explains how we analyze color as three sets of opposing colors; yellow-blue, red-green, & white-black.
    is the same thing as Opponent-Process Theory.
    is supported in that we have three types of cones (red, green, & blue) in the retina.
  • Q3
    Using the above image, identify the part of the ear that causes ripples in the basilar membrane, triggering adjacent nerve cells, who's axons converge to form the auditory nerve.

    Semicircular canals
  • Q4
    If sound exceeds 100 decibels it is potentially damaging.
  • Q5
    Place Theory
    suggests we taste different tastes based on where their receptors are located on the tongue.
    predicts we hear different pitches because the rate of nerve impulses traveling up the auditory nerve matches the frequency of a tone.
    states we hear different pitches because different sound waves trigger activity at different places along the cochlea's basilar membrane.
    supports the view that loudness of sound is produced solely in the inner ear.
  • Q6
    The vestibular sense
    monitors your head's position and movement to provide a sense of equilibrium.
    monitors pain messages that come into the central nervous system.
    works with the outer ear to provide balance.
    is totally altered if you can not see.
  • Q7
    The Gate-Control Theory
    determines the loudness of sound perceived.
    is the reason why women have a better sense of smell than men.
    explains why some tastes are so strong, where others tend to be weak.
    explains the sensation of pain.
  • Q8
    Which of the following would be a good example of sensory interaction?
    Taste buds can register pain and touch, as well as taste.
    Registering something in the right and left hemisphere together allow the brain to perceive the entire image.
    Cold and warm sensations are registered in the brain as.
    Greg is able to understand a very soft spoken Alice, because he can see her mouth move.
  • Q9
    Smell can easily trigger memories because
    most vivid memories have specific smells which get in-bedded in the memory.
    olfactory circuitry in the brain is connect to areas of memory and emotion storage.
    smells and memories are registered in the parietal lobe.
    we remember smells better than we remember memories.
