a. accommodationb. perceptionc. sensationd. transductionCorrect:Sensation is the process of detecting external events by sense organs and turning thoseevents into neural signals. In contrast, perception involves attending to, organizing, andinterpreting stimuli that we sense.Answer: bDiff: 1Type: MCPage Reference: 132Skill: ConceptualObjective: Know the key terminology of sensation and perception.4) __________ involves the detection of energy by sense organs, whereas __________ involvesinterpreting sensory inputs.a. Perception; sensationb. Adaptation; perceptionc. Sensation; perceptiond. Sensation; adaptationCorrect:Sensation is the process of detecting external events by sense organs and turning thoseevents into neural signals. In contrast, perception involves attending to, organizing, andinterpreting stimuli that we sense.

It is part of the process of sensation.Answer: dDiff: 2Type: MCPage Reference: 132Skill: ConceptualObjective: Know the key terminology of sensation and perception.6) When Bethany steps on her digital scale, a mechanism in it measures the physical pressurepushing down on the scale and converts it into an electrical signal that can be read by the scale.The converting of the physical pressure on the scale caused by Bethany's weight into anelectrical signal is similar to the process of ____________.a. transductionb. bottom-up processingc. top-down processingd. perceptionCorrect:Transduction is the process in which physical or chemical stimulation is converted intoa nerve impulse that is relayed to the brain. It is part of the process of sensation. Bottom-up andtop-down processing are part of the perceptual process.Answer: aDiff: 2
Type: MCPage Reference: 132Skill: AppliedObjective: Know the key terminology of sensation and perception.7) When she walks into her mother's kitchen, Amelia doesn't know how long she will be able tostay in the room because of the overpowering smell of onions. But when her sister comes homean hour later and complains about the smell, Amelia realizes that she no longer smells the onionsat all. This is an example of ________________.a. sensory adaptationb. just noticeable differencec. a correct rejectiond. a false alarmCorrect:Sensory adaptation is the reduction of activity in sensory receptors with continuedexposure to a stimulus. In this example, Amelia smells the onions when she first walks into thekitchen. However, after being continuously exposed to the smell for a while, her olfactoryreceptors stop sending the signal to brain.
