controls fine movements, organized by body part 139 . Parietal Lobe top of brain, behind frontal lobe sense of touch, integrates senses, spatial location, and navigation 140 . Sensory Cortex sense of touch, organized by body part 141 . Temporal Lobe under the temples, by ears hearing, understanding language
142 . Occipital Lobe back of the brain vision, separate areas control shape, color, motion 143 . Split Brain Surgery cuts corpus callosum to help epileptic patients, does reduce seizures but creates disconnect from hemispheres of brain, info is stuck 144 Why would we use split brain surgery?
. 145 . How does split brain surgery influence the ways that a person perceives the world?
146 . Plasticity brain's ability to modify itself 147 Why is plasticity important for brain
. development? 148 . Neuroprosthetics neural devices that replace functions of a body part 149 . Sensation sensory receptors and nervous system create awareness of properties of object/event 150 . Perception the act of organizing and interpreting sensory input 151 . Bottom-up Processing processing initiated by stimulus input, begins with senses and works up to perception senses-perception 152 . Top-down Processing processing that is guided by knowledge, expectations, or beliefs occurs from perceptions to senses 153 . Absolute Threshold smallest amount of a sensory stimulus needed to notice that it is there Bare minimum 154 . Just-Noticeable Difference the amount of change needed in a stimulus to notice that a change has occurred 155 . Subliminal Sensation below threshold 156 . Priming tendency for recently-used words or ideas to come to mind easily, influence the interpretation of new information 157 . Sensory Adaptation decreased sensitivity due to constant stimulation 158 . Transduction transforming sensory input (light waves, sound waves, etc.) into neural impulses our brain can interpret 159 . How do amplitude and wavelength of a light wave influence our visual perception?
