See if you can remember what the two main theories on information processing were? Can you explain the distinction between the concepts of sensation and perception? Do you understand the basic mechanisms by which neurons communicate? Can you define Signal Detection Theory and its four main responses? Can you describe the functions, structures and pathways of the visual system including both the eyes and the brain? Do you remember what is meant by receptive fields? Do you remember what is meant by Occipital lobe? Can you compare and contrast the photopic versus scotopic vision? What is mid-level vision? How can mid-level vision and object recognition be seen as being accomplished by a perceptual committee? Can you contrast template matching versus structural models of object recognition? Do you remember the Gestalt grouping principles? How is facial recognition different than object recognition? Do you remember how visual searchers work? The difference between the different types of visual searches? Can you explain how processes of attention are related to various brain structures, including how brain damage can lead to attention-related disorders? Can you remember the theories and information on color vision? What about the phenomena that affect our perceptions of color in the real world?
