Distinguish between sensation and perception Sensation The stimulation of the sense organs Perception The selection, organisation and interpretation of sensory input Sensation begins with a stimuli – any detectable input from the environment Sensation and perception
A threshold = a dividing point between energy levels that do and do not have an effect Absolute Threshold = for a specific type of sensory input is the minimum amount of stimulation an organism can detect Just Noticeable Difference (JND) – is the smallest difference in the amount of stimulation that a specific sense can detect
Discuss the meaning & significance of sensory adaptation Sensory Adaptation Gradual decline in the sensitivity to prolonged stimulation Sensory adaptation is similar to habituation (Boundless, 2014) Bad smells Cold water The Visual system
Describe the role of the lens and the pupil in the functioning of the eye to see there must be light Light is electromagnetic radiation that travels as a wave the visible spectrum is only a small portion of what humans can see Cant see on the ultraviolet or infrared spectrum Incoming visual input is converted into neural impulses that are sent to the brain The Visual system
Describe the role of the lens and the pupil in the functioning of the eye of The Visual system
Describe the role of the lens and the pupil in the functioning of the eye The Visual system
Describe the role of the lens and the pupil in the functioning of the eye Nearsightedness = Focus of light falls short of retina Farsightedness = Focus of light falls behind retina A cataract is a lens that is clouded The Visual system
