Visual Information Processing Color Constancy: perceiving familiar objects as having consistent color, even if changing illumination alters the wavelengths reflected by the object. Audition: the sense of hearing Visual Capture: tendency for vision to dominate the other senses Frequency: the number of complete wavelengths that pass a point in a given time (ex: per second) Pitch: a tones highness or lowness, depends on frequency. Middle Ear: chamber between eardrum and cochlea containing three tiny bones (hammer, anvil stirrup) that concentrate the vibrations of the eardrum on the cochlea’s oval window Inner Ear: innermost part of the ear, containing the cochlea, semicircular canals, and vestibular sacs Cochlea: coiled, bony, fluid filled tube in the inner ear. Touch, Temperature, Pain Pathway Receptors: Spinal Cord: Thalamus: Parietal Lobe SKIN Epidermis: protection, maintains temperature, provides stimuli, helps maintain integrity of what’s inside.
