Hierarchical Stimulus Processing by Pigeons    http://www.pigeon.psy.tufts.edu/avc/cook/default.htm  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Understanding how visual stimuli are perceived, discriminated, recognized, and ultimately come to control behavior is one of the central issues in animal cognition. This chapter reviews recent experiments from my laboratory looking at how pigeons process hierarchically-arranged information presented at different spatial scales. Results are presented from three different paradigms that tested a variety of texture stimuli, hierarchical figural stimuli, and dynamic object-like stimuli. ...

Map Makers Can Avoid Confusing the Color Blind    http://www.psu.edu/ur/2000/colorblindness.html  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Color blindness is not a single problem but a variety of problems that affect color vision. Only a very small portion of people do not see color at all, but view the world in shades of gray. The most common type of color blindness is red/green, which has two forms. Some people are missing red receptor cones and others are missing green receptor cones. People with different forms of red/green color blindness have slight differences in the way they perceive color. Another form of color blindness is blue/yellow, which is less common. While only 8 percent of men are color-blind, they make up 95 percent of the 9,000,000 people in the U.S. who suffer color-vision impairment. ...

Neuroscience    http://www.monell.org/neuroscience.htm  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Perception of tastes, odors and chemical irritants begins with the activation of sensory cells in the mouth, nose, and on the skin. These receptor cells have specialized features that make them sensitive to particular chemicals. Chemosensory stimulation triggers the cascade of molecular and cellular events that translate or "transduce" information about the stimulus into a signal for the nervous system. The encoded information is then transmitted to appropriate brain areas to initiate and maintain the sensory experience. ...

...Synesthesia is a condition in which one sense (for example, hearing) is simultaneously perceived as if by one or more additional senses such as sight. Another form of synesthesia joins objects such as letters, shapes, numbers or people's names with a sensory perception such as smell, color or flavor. ...

Nutrition and Appetite    http://www.monell.org/nutrition.htm  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...The chemical senses are most fully engaged when we eat and drink because the flavors of foods and beverages are a combination of taste, smell and, depending on cuisine, chemosensory irritation. One's choice of foods, which is a crucial determinant of nutritional status, is guided largely by flavor. However, the nutritional impact of flavor goes beyond the choice of food. Activation of the chemical senses by food triggers reflexes that influence digestion and metabolism of nutrients. Changes in body metabolism, in turn, modulate responses to the flavor of food and, along with chemosensory cues, shape food preferences. ...

Object Recognition    http://www.pigeon.psy.tufts.edu/avc/kirkpatrick/default.htm  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...This chapter addresses a number of fundamental issues relating to object recognition, concentrating particularly on an avian species, the pigeon. The task is to determine whether the basic process of object recognition in pigeons is at all similar to the most probable process that has been proposed for humans. In order to demonstrate the conditions under which object recognition may or may not occur, a number of illustrated examples will be provided. ...

Psychological Investigations of Unconscious Perception    http://watarts.uwaterloo.ca/~pmerikle/papers/Merikle.JConsStudies.1998.pdf  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...This paper reviews the history of psychological investigations of unconscious perception and summarizes the current status of experimental research in this area of investigation. The research findings described in the paper illustrate how it is possible to distinguish experimentally between conscious and unconscious perception. The most successful experimental strategy has been to show that a stimulus can have qualitatively different consequences on cognitive and affective reactions depending on whether it was consciously or unconsciously perceived.
