  • Summary Of Evan Thompson's Waking Dreaming

    Indeed, even the competing stimuli are switched rapidly between the two eyes in humans, binocular rivalry still produced its normal slow alternation of perceptions. The discovered persistence of gradually dynamical rivalrous perceptions when stimuli are switched powerfully suggests that binocular rivalry occurs as a consequence of alternate stimulus representations compete within the visual pathway. Binocular rivalry thus affords an opportunity to study how the visual system decides what people see even when both eyes see the almost same thing (23). However, a general, non-selective reduction in affectability during the suppression of a stimulus is not selective to binocular rivalry, but rather can likewise occur when seeing (non-dichoptically) ambiguous figures (“Single Units”…

  • Essay On Transitioning To Parenthood

    The second child would not only divide the attention of their parents, but also finances and resources as well. It is tough for a child to accept his/her sibling in the very beginning, due to them now sharing their parent’s “attention and affect” (Berk 583).

  • Incarnations Of Burned Children And Binocular Vision

    One of the things that I enjoyed most was our readings. Incarnations of Burned Children by David Foster Wallace, Lobster Night by Russell Banks, and Binocular Vision by Edith Pearlman are three short stories that impacted me the most from these stories. From Incarnations of Burned Children and Binocular Vision I learned that a story does not have to be long at all for it to be meaningful. The use of one single event can create a lot of meaning in a story. The use of sentence length can also…

  • Optic Neuropathy Reflection

    Many diverse emotions and physical feelings were involved during my contrived experience. Before simulating monocular vision due to Arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAAION), I did not anticipate the increased level of difficulty that certain normal activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) would have on my day. My experience consisted of an eye-patch covering up my left eye for 12 hours. Some of the activities I found to be the more…

  • Five Principles Of Perceptual Grouping

    instance, in Gibsons and Walk’s experiment they used six to fourteen month old infants on the edge of a safe canyon where their mother forced crawl out onto the glass on the other side of the edge. However, most infants refused to crawl to the mother because they used depth perception and was afraid to crawl to the other side. Thus, this shows that infants learn new things by crawling and are able to identify the increasing height difference by moving around experiencing new things. This concept…

  • Creativity Vs Plasticity Essay

    individual has a lazy eye that is due to disuse of the eye causing the eye to have reduced vision during early postnatal development. Research was conducted on amblyopia condition by Kathryn and her colleagues where they wanted to see if binocular visual training can recover the deprived eye in people with amblyopia. In order to answer that question they first went to see if early monocular deprivation (which represents amblyopia) can be fixed using early binocular orientation-in-noise training,…

  • Forgetting-Fixation Theory

    In addition, participants were also given an example of the RAT and instructions and explanation for the two interpolated task and the same RAT problems were given to those in the incubation condition similar to Penaloza and Calvillo’s (2012) experiment. As we also wanted to address whether the nature of the interpolated task had an affect on incubation effects, rather than giving a reading passage which Penaloza and Calvillo (2012) gave during the incubation period, stimulus chosen was similar…

  • Aphantasia And Mental Perceptions

    His main area of research is cognitive neuroscience, which includes visual perception, which most likely led him to research aphantasia and people’s perceptions. The research conducted was basic research, looking into manipulating people’s imagination. This was done by using binocular rivalry, which was also able measure mental images. Pearson also looked into brain mechanisms and how they function when a person is using their imagination to create mental images. Pearson’s research found that…

  • Correlate Of Consciousness

    In which some sort of an external stimuli is integrated through neural mechanisms which coincides with some form of subjective experience. The prerequisites for this method seem to mimic objective scientific methods. Yet this approach does not aim to explain another physical phenomena, but rather a subjective experience. For instance, experimentation of binocular rivalries, that is studying patterns of what one is looking at and using this as a signal of what one is conscious of. This method of…
