1

Biederman

Recognition by Components theory

2

How many geons in RBC theory

36 in total

3

Principle of componential recovery

identify geons

link with memory

different spatial relations

 

If we can ID the geons we can ID the object

4

4 problems with RBC theory

  1. Some objects may be made up of the same geons/arrangement
  2. Some objects are ungeonable
  3. Faces
  4. Expertise

 

5

The issue of faces and RBC

fusiform face area

infant preferences

inversion experiments

6

expertise and RBC

neural plasticity

greeble experts

special expertise area

7

What technique can eliminate illusory conjunctions?

attending to the shapes, primarily

8

One important function of the parietal lobe

spatial attention

9

Balint's syndrome

where is damage

3 types

Parietal lobe

optic ataxia, oculomotor apraxia, simultagnosia

10

optic ataxia

unable to move hand to a specific object using vision

11

oculomotor apraxia

difficulty fixating eyes

12

simultagnosia

unable to perceive visual field as a whole

1 object at a time

Red T + Blue O + Blue T

13

Parietal neglect

in right hemisphere

left side of space is neglected due to contralateral organization

14

Pseudo-neglect

we attend more to the left side of space

15

synchrony hypothesis

binding problem

neurons fire in synchrony to link different features together

16

What happens to movement perception with a destroyed medial temporal cortex

stimulation

bad direction detection

 

direction judgements change

17

what is responsible for detecting biological motion?

superior temporal sulcus
