Illusory Figures Perceptual Constancy Perceptual Constancy The perception of an object or quality as unchanging despite

changes in the proximal stimulus. http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Shape_constancy.gif https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hot_air_balloon__color_constancy.jpg

Perceptual Constancy Top-Down vs Bottom-Up Top-Down Process Knowledge Driven

Requires information beyond the stimulus Bottom-Up Stimulus Driven Relies entirely on the neural response to stimulation

The Binding Problem - How is neural activity from different brain regions combined to give a coherent perceptual experience? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SimulationNeuralOscillations.png

The Binding Problem: Neural Synchrony http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hermann_von_Helmholtz.jpg Unconscious Inference Unconscious Inference The phenomenon

that occurs when ones statistical knowledge of the environment alters the perception of proximal stimulation, without effort on the part of the perceiver. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Grey_square_optical_illusion.PNG

but the brain changes its assumption about color due to the color cast of the surrounding photo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color-constancy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ColourIllusion2.jpg
