88. Binocular disparity Binocular depth perception cue, the difference in images between the two eyes, which is greater for objects that are close and smaller for distant objects. The difference in images between the two eyes, which means the closer than object the greater and the farther away the object the smaller. 89. Retinal Disparity A binocular cue for perceiving depth; by comparing images from the two eyeballs, the brain computes distance the greater the distance between the objects, the closer the object. Comparing the images from two eyeballs. 90. Feature Detectors Specialized nerve cell in the brain that responds to specific stimuli such as lines, edges, angles, or movement. A nerve cell that responds to lines, edges, angles, or movement. 91. Muller-Lyer illusion Illusion of the line length that is distorted by inward-turning or outward- turning corners on the ends of the lines, causing lines of equal length to appear to be different. Seeing that the line length is distorted by inward- turning or outward turning corners on the ends of the lines. 92. Perceptual set (perceptual expectancy) The tendency to perceive things a certain way because previous experiences or expectations influence those perceptions. Seeing things certain way because of a previous experience. 93. Top-down processing The use of preexisting knowledge to organize individual features into a Using pre existing knowledge to organize individual features into a unified whole
unified whole 94. Bottom-up processing The analysis of the smaller features to build up to a complete perception. Analyzing smaller features to build up a complete perception 95. Parapsychology The study of ESP, ghosts, and other subjects that do not normally fall into the realm of ordinary psychology. Studying subjects that do not normally fall into the realm of ordinary psychology. 96. Moon Illusion The perceived change in the size of the moon based upon its location near the horizon as compared to its location high in the sky. Thinking that the size of the moon based upon its location. 97. Stroboscopic Movement When a viewer observes a rapidly changing series of images with slight differences, the viewer experiences the images as a single animated image. Observing changing series of images with slight differences. 98. Phi Phenomenon Visual illusion of motion that occurs when a person views a series of stationary lights that illuminate in a series. An illusion of motion when a person looks at a series of stationary lights. 99. Ponzo Illusion When a viewer observes two objects of similar size, but perceives them to be of different sizes due to the presence of converging lines in the files of view Seeing same sized objects as the same size. 100. Ames Room A specially constructed room, made with extreme angles. When two people are in the room and a viewer looks into the room through a specially placed view hole, one of the people appears to be gigantic in size compared to the other A constructed room that is made with extreme angles.
