    20 SEPTEMBER 2021

    My work is going a bit slow but I’m still getting things done, I haven’t set for myself a morning routine post summer, I really have to do it soon.

    I’ve met with my friend to discuss our individual projects based on the group project and I should feel like I now know what I’m going to do but I don’t, I still have no clue to where to start... I’m not accustomed to work alone on projects ugh

    I need to go to the library to do ✨researchers ✨ on old thesis reviewed by our professor, I just have to find out the opening hours.

    September 21st, 2021

    Yesterday I had a good day studying. I’ve been at campus the whole day. I did some reading, had a lecture, did some more reading and some planning ánd I met up with someone lovely who I hadn’t seen in a while. The uni has such a lovely vibe and it really starts to feel like a second home, ahaha

    I saw that my posts are gaining a lot of notes and that's was surprising. It was a tea spill on my meticulous notes. Maybe it was a relatable situation? I honestly have no clue. Thanks a lot though, really fuelled my spirit.

    College is now turning to be a constant stream of lifeless tests and late night study sessions. Mid terms are approaching quick and as a result we are getting many tests and assignments. So I decided to upgrade a bunch of old notebooks into planners to help me keep track of everything that's going on since it is a lot. Will post my progress too if I feel like it. My posts were never that consistent, but they might reduce now. Also club recruitment results are slowly being released, and some forms are still present, so am waiting, and waiting, and waiting.

    Oh and these are the books am reading for now, did a book haul this Sunday after going for a movie, so am excited to complete these books!

    Take care, stay safe.

    things i hate about anatomy and physiology, like 3 weeks into classes:

    - blood and bone are connective tissues. muscle is not

    - breast milk is techincally sweat, as is earwax

    - your apocrine glands are sweat glands that secrete "protein- and fat-rich sweat" along a hair follicle, located only in armipts, anal area, and AREOLAS???

    - every epithelial tissue looks the fucking same

    Finally doing this on time! Today I dressed up for '60s day at my school, came up with 2 article ideas for the paper, and auditioned for the upcoming musical. I'm not super content as to how I'm perceived by others right now, but that's okay. I have quite a bit of work due tomorrow, but I think I can get through it!

    Me? Waking up early? Apparently possible! Was supposed to go out with a friend for breakfast, but I guess I took all the willpower to wake up this morning, so I made myself some black tea, treated myself to some biscuits, worked out a bit, had a shower, then let the study begin!

    Psychology Chapter 4 Definitions

    sensation: simple stimulation of a sense organ.

    perception: the organization, identification, and interpretation of a sensation in order to form a mental representation.

    transduction: when sense receptors convert physical signals from the environment into neural signals that are sent to the central nervous system.

    sensory adaptation: sensitivity to prolonged stimulation tends to decline over time as an organism adapts to current (un-changing) conditions.

    psychophysics: methods that systematically relate the physical characteristics of a stimulus to an observer’s perception.

    absolute threshold: the minimal intensity needed to just barely detect a stimulus in 50% of the trials.

    sensitivity: how responsive we are to faint stimuli.

    acuity: how well we can distinguish two very similar stimuli.

    just noticeable difference (JND): the minimal change in a stimulus (e.g. in its loudness or its brightness) that can just barely be detected.

    Weber’s law: for every sense domain, the change in a stimulus that is just noticeable is a constant ratio of the standard stimulus, over a range of standard intensities.

    Signal detection theory (SDT): a way of analyzing data from psychophysics experiments that measures an individual’s perceptual sensitivity (how effectively the perceptual system represents sensory events).

    visual acuity: the ability to see fine detail.

    retina: a layer of light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eyeball.

    accommodation: the process by which the eye maintains a clear image on the retina.

    cones: detect color, operate under normal daylight conditions, and allow us to focus on fine detail.

    rods: become active only under low-light conditions, for night vision.

    fovea: an area of the retina where vision is clearest and there are no rods at all.

    blind spot: a location in the visual field that produces no sensation on the retina.

    area V1: the part of the occipital lobe that contains the primary visual cortex.

    color-opponent system: pairs of cone types (channels) work in opposition.

    visual receptive field: the region of the visual field to which each neuron responds.

    binding problem: how the brain links features together so that we see unified objects in our visual world rather than free-floating or miscombined features.

    parallel processing: the brain’s capacity to perform many activities at the same time.

    illusory conjunction: a perceptual mistake whereby the brain incorrectly combines features from multiple objects.

    feature-integration theory: focused attention is not required to detect the individual features that make up a stimulus (e.g. the color, shape, size, and location of letters), but it is required to bind those individual features together.

    attention: the active and conscious processing of particular information.

    perceptual constancy: the idea that, even as aspects of sensory signals change, perception remains constant.

    perceptual contrast: the idea that, although the sensory information from two things may be very similar, we perceive the objects as different.

    perceptual organization: the process of grouping and segregating features to create whole objects organized in meaningful ways.

    monocular depth cues: aspects of a scene that yield information about depth when viewed with only one eye.

    binocular disparity: the difference in the retinal images of the two eyes.

    apparent motion: perception of movement as a result of alternating signals appearing in rapid succession in different locations.

    spatial acuity: ability to distinguish two features that are very close together in space.

    temporal acuity: the ability to distinguish two features that are very close together in time.

    multisensory: stimulating multiple senses at the same time.

    ventriloquist illusion: the fact that you depend on your visual system for reliable information about spatial location.

    change blindness: when people fail to detect changes to the visual details of a scene.

    inattentional blindness: a failure to perceive objects that are not the focus of attention.

    pitch: how high or low a sound is, as ordered on a musical scale.

    loudness: how humans perceive amplitude.

    timbre: the quality of sound that allows you to distinguish two sources with the same pitch and loudness.

    cochlea: a fluid-filled tube containing cells that transduce sound vibrations into neural impulses.

    basilar membrane: a structure in the inner ear that moves up and down in time with vibrations relayed from the ossicles, transmitted through the oval window.

    traveling wave: the up-and-down movement that sound causes in the basilar membrane.

    inner hair cells: specialized auditory receptor neurons embedded in the basilar membrane.

    area A1: the primary auditory cortex in the temporal lobe.

    place code: the brain uses information about the relative activity of hair cells (e.g. which ones are more active and which are less active) across the whole basilar membrane to help determine the pitch you hear.

    temporal code: the brain uses the timing of the action potentials in the auditory nerve to help determine the pitch you hear.

    haptic perception: the active exploration of the environment by touching and grasping objects with our hands.

    tactile receptive field: a small patch of skin that relates information about pain, pressure, texture, pattern, or vibration to a receptor.

    referred pain: occurs when sensory information from internal and external areas converges on the same nerve cells in the spinal cord.

    gate-control theory: holds that signals arriving from pain receptors in the body can be stopped, or gated, by interneurons in the spinal cord, via feedback from the skin or from the brain.

    proprioception: your sense of body position.

    vestibular system: the three fluid-filled semicircular canals and adjacent organs located next to the cochlea in each inner ear.

    olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs): receptor cells that transduce odorant molecules into neural impulses.

    olfactory bulb: a brain structure located above the nasal cavity beneath the frontal lobes.

    pheromones: biochemical odorants emitted by other members of an animal’s species that can affect its behavior or physiology.

    Psychology Chapter 4 Review

    {Sensation and Perception Are Distinct Activities}

    - Sensation and perception are critical to survival. Sensation is the simple stimulation of a sense organ, whereas perception organizes, identifies, and interprets sensation at the level of the brain. - All of our senses depend on the process of transduction, which converts physical signals from the environment into neural signals carried by sensory neurons into the central nervous system. - In the 19th century, researchers developed psychophysics, an approach to studying perception that measures the strength of a stimulus and an observer’s sensitivity to that stimulus. Psychophysicists have developed procedures for measuring an observer’s absolute threshold, which is the smallest intensity needed to just barely detect a stimulus, as well as the just noticeable difference (JND), which is the smallest change in a stimulus that can just barely be detected. - Signal detection theory allows researchers to distinguish between an observer’s perceptual sensitivity to a stimulus and criteria for making decisions about that stimulus. - Sensory adaptation occurs when sensitivity to unchanging stimulation declines over time.

    {Visual Pathways: Connections Between the Eye and the Brain}

    - Light travels in waves that pass through several layers in the eye to reach the retina. In a process called accommodation, the eye muscles change the shape of the lens to focus objects at different distances on the retina. - Two types of photoreceptor cells in the retina transduce light into neural impulses: cones operate under normal daylight conditions and sense color; rods are active under low-light conditions for night vision. The neural impulses travel along the optic nerve to the brain. - The retina consists of several layers; the innermost consists of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) that collect and send signals to the brain. Bundles of RGCs axons form the optic nerve. - Information encoded by the retina travels to the brain along the optic nerve, which connects to the lateral geniculate nucleus in the thalamus and then to the primary visual cortex (area V1) in the occipital lobe. - Light striking the retina causes a specific pattern of response in each of three cone types that are critical to color perception: short-wavelength (bluish) light, medium-wavelength (greenish) light, and long-wavelength (reddish) light. The overall pattern of response across the three cone types results in a unique code for each color. - The shapes of objects are perceived when different neurons in the visual cortex fire in response to different orientations of the object’s edges. - Two functionally distinct pathways project from the occipital lobe to visual areas in other parts of the brain. The ventral stream travels into the lower levels of the temporal lobes and includes brain areas that represent an object’s shape and identity. The dorsal stream goes from occipital lobes to the parietal lobes, connecting with brain areas that identify the location and motion of an object.

    {Visual Perception: Recognizing What We See}

    - Illusory conjunctions occur when features from separate objects are mistakenly combined. According to feature-integration theory, attention provides the glue necessary to bind features together. The parietal lobe is important for attention and contributes to feature binding. - Some regions in the occipital and temporal lobes respond selectively to specific object categories, supporting the modular view that specialized brain areas detect particular classes of objects, such as faces or houses or body parts. - The principle of perceptual constancy holds that even as sensory signals change, perception remains consistent. - Gestalt principles of perceptual grouping, such as simplicity, closure, and continuity, govern how features are perceptually organized into meaningful objects. - Depth perception depends on monocular cues, such as familiar size and linear perspective; binocular cues, such as retinal disparity; and motion-based cues, which are based on the movement of the head over time. - We experience a sense of motion through the differences in the strengths of output from neurons sensitive to motion in different directions. These processes can give rise to illusions such as apparent motion. - Change blindness and inattentional blindness occur when we fail to notice visible and even salient features of our environment, emphasizing that our conscious visual experience depends on focused attention.

    {Hearing: More Than Meets the Ear}

    - Perceiving sound depends on three physical dimensions of a sound wave: the frequency of the sound wave determines the pitch; the amplitude determines the loudness; and differences in the complexity (or mix) of frequencies determine the sound quality, or timbre. - Auditory pitch perception begins in the ear, which consists of an outer ear that funnels sound waves toward the middle ear, which in turn sends the vibrations to the inner ear, which contains the cochlea. Action potentials from the inner ear travel along an auditory pathway through the thalamus to the primary auditory cortex (area A1) in the temporal lobe. - Auditory perception depends on both a place code and a temporal code. Our ability to localize sound sources depends critically on the placement of our ears on opposite sides of the head. - Some hearing loss can be overcome with hearing aids that amplify sound. When hair cells are damaged, a cochlear implant is a possible solution.

    {The Body Senses: More Than Skin Deep}

    - Sensory receptors on the body send neural signals to locations in the somatosensory cortex, a part of the parietal lobe, which the brain translates as the sensation of touch. Different locations on the body project sensory signals to different locations in the cortex, and some areas are better at discriminating details. - The experience of pain depends on signals that travel along two distinct pathways. One pathway sends signals to the somatosensory cortex to indicate the location and type of pain, and another sends signals to the emotional centers of the brain that result in unpleasant feelings we wish to escape. The experience of pain varies across individuals, which is explained by bottom-up and top-down aspects of the gate-control theory of pain. - Balance and acceleration depend primarily on the vestibular system, but are also influenced by vision.

    {The Chemical Senses: Adding Flavor}

    - Our experience of smell, or olfaction, is associated with odorant molecules that bind to sites on specialized olfactory receptors, which converge within the olfactory bulb. The olfactory bulb in turn sends signals to parts of the brain that control drives, emotions, and memories, which helps to explain why smells can have immediate and powerful effects on us. - Smell is also involved in social behavior, as illustrated by pheromones, which are related to reproductive behavior and sexual responses in several species. - Sensations of taste depend on taste buds, which are distributed across the tongue, the roof of the mouth, and the upper throat, as well as on taste receptors which correspond to the five primary taste sensations of salt, sour, bitter, sweet, and umami. - Taste experiences vary widely across individuals and, like olfactory experiences, depend in part on cognitive influences.
