Part of the visual field that has meaning, stands out and can clearly be differentiated from the less relevant background.
A group of perceptual principles that organise visual perceptual features and that integrate them into connected patterns and whole forms.
That which does not constitute figure in a visual scene; the non-relevant information
Filling in the missing parts to complete and incomplete figure
Binocular cues ?
Depth cues based on the combination of images on both eyes
Because our eyes are about 60 mm apart, our retinas receive slightly different images of external objects; this difference is retinal disparity
Difference in direction of the eyes as they turn towards one another to focus on objects that are close
Depth cues that can be extracted from the image in only one eye
Grouping together similar items
Grouping objects that are close to each other
Ability to see objects in three dimensions by estimating how distant they are from our viewing point
Information used to perceive depth in our visual environment
Static monocular cues that are used to represent depth on a 2D surface, such as pictures and photgraphs
Front covering of the eye that covers the iris and pupil
Muscles in the eye that control the shape of the lens by making it thinner or thicker
Transparent flexible structure in the eye that focuses on light on the retina by changing shape
Mechanism by which the shape of the lens is changed in order to bring the image of an object into sharp focus
Stability of perception despite variation in physical stimulation
Visual size constancy?
Tendency to perceive an object as having the same size even though, when the object is viewed from different distances, its retinal image changes
Visual Shape Constancy ?
Tendency to perceive the shape of objects as stable, despite the fact that the same object may produce a nee and different form of stimulation on the retina every time we look at it
Visual Brightness Constancy ?
Tendency to perceive an object as having constant brightness, despite changes in the amount of light reflected from the object
Visual Orientation Constancy ?
Tendency to perceive an object as having a stable orientation even when it is rotated
A pictorial depth cur that occurs when one object partially blocks another object and is perceived as being in front of, and therefore closer than the object it covers
A pictorial depth cue where apparent convergence of parallel lines created the illusion of increasing distance
