The process of detecting specific elements in visual input and assembling  perceptions of form and pattern into a more complex form is known as: As discussed in lecture, small electrical currents will activate nerve  impulses when the number of positive currents in a certain period of time  exceeds a certain threshold. This process of synaptic integration is known  as  spatial summation. Sarah is a pianist who reports that she sees musical tones as colors. This  is one example of What is long-term potentiating? l A cellular phenomenon l High frequency stimulation increases the ability of cell a to activate cell b l Two stages: induction and maintenance 18, who is Donald Hebb and what is the brief form of his rule? l Donald Hebb is an psychologist, Hebb’s rule is “ when an axon of cell A excites cell B and repeatedly or persistently takes part in firing it, some growth process or metabolic change takes place in one or both cells so that A’s efficiency as one of the cells
