4.The use by the visual system of retinal disparity to give depth information--providing a 3 dimensional appearance to the world.
7.In perception, the experience that comes from organizing bits and pieces of information into meaningful wholes.
9.The nerve that carries impulses from the retina to the brain.
13.Receptor cells in the retina that are sensitive to light, but not to color. Particularly useful in night vision.
15.The opening of the iris that regulates the amount of light entering the eye.
16.The organization of sensory information into meaningful experiences.
19.Three semicircular canals located in the inner ear and connected to the brain by the vestibular nerve. They provide the sense of balance.
20.Receptor cells in the retina sensitive to color. Because they require more light than rods to function, they are most useful in daytime vision.
1.An ability to gain information by some means other than the ordinary senses (such as taste, hearing, and vision).
2.What occurs when a stimulus activated a receptor.
3.The tendency to perceive certain objects in the same way, regardless of changing angle, distance, or lighting.

10.The study of the relationships betwen sensory experiences and the physical stimuli that cause them.
11.The apparent movement of stationary objects relative to one another that occurs when the observer changes position. Near objects seem to move greater distances than far objects.
12.The nerve that carried smell impulses from the nose to the brain.
14.The innermost coating of the black of the eye, containing the light-sensitive receptor cells.
17.Perceptions that misrepresent physical stimuli.
18.Measures of the physical intensity of sound, which is lawfully related to the sensation of loudness.
