    Hi Guys, On Monday morning we will all be sitting in our lecture to receive a question which relates to Vision and Perception, my question is how do I go about answering it? :confused: We have had 2 lectures on Vision but not an awful lot of input other than this, I have done some reading but it does not seem to tie in with the question. I have the weekend only to get some rough notes down on which direction to take, and honestly i'm stressed. The question is "Discuss the role of information processing in visual perception. In your answer
    draw on how simple stimulus dimensions such as colour and depth are coded", I know this looks easy but I seem to be drawing a blank as to what to write.. Any help very graciously received. :hoppy:

    You may or may not find the case study of Solomon Shereshevsky useful. His case is an example of combined perception where the different senses become interwoven (synaesthesia). I personally find his [cognitive] method of information processing quite remarkable.

    What about things like rods and cones and then the different areas of visual perception (V1, V2 etc)? Look at things like blindsight maybe? I found that really interesting. There's also another condition where people can't see movement, akinetopsia for example. I found this book really valuable during my undergrad (albeit an earlier edition) http://bookshop.blackwell.co.uk/jsp/.../9780199572021

    I have used Akinetopsia as one of my examples, have also consider Binocular theory. Blindsight? Maybe I nodded off in a lecture :/
