(the visual images of an object provided by each eye are slightly different, yielding a perception of depth), relative size of objects (larger objects are perceived to be nearer to us), interposition (when one object overlaps another, we perceive it as closer than the other object), texture gradient (nearer objects are visually clearer, sharper, and more detailed than are farther objects), and linear perspective (parallel lines will seem to converge as they move farther away from us). These processes usually provide multiple, overlapping cues concerning distance and depth perception in any particular situation. Identify and Define 13. The concept illustrated is selective attention, which describes how our attention becomes focused on selected events and others are excluded. 14.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
