VISION
BY TAN AND BLAINE

INTERROGATION TIME!!! ;)

WE TRUST OUR VISUAL


SENSE FIRST ABOVE ALL
OUR OTHER SENSES!

BLIND SPOT ACTIVITY


COVER YOUR RIGHT EYE AND LOOK AT THE BLACK STAR. MOVE SLOWLY
TOWARD THE PAPER.

BLIND SPOT ACTIVITY


COVER YOUR RIGHT EYE AND LOOK AT THE BLACK STAR. MOVE SLOWLY
TOWARD THE PAPER.

WHAT WE SEE IS ONLY WHAT OUR


BRAIN TELLS US WE SEE, AND IT'S
NOT 100 PERCENT ACCURATE!!!!

AFTER LIGHT ENTERS OUR EYES


1. RETINA INTERPRETS PHOTONS INTO
MOVIES, SENDS THEM ALONG
OPTIC NERVE
2. OPTIC NERVE BRINGS SIGNAL TO
THALAMUS, WHERE IT IS DIVIDED
ALONG NEURAL STREAMS
3. ASSOCIATION CORTICES
REASSEMBLE THE SIGNAL INTO
WHAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE

PARTS OF THE EYE AND BRAIN


RETINA
INTERPRETS PATTERNS OF
PHOTONS, ASSEMBLES THEM FOR
THE OPTIC NERVE

OPTIC NERVE
CARRIES MOVIES TO THALAMUS

THALAMUS
DIVIDES SIGNAL AMONG NEURAL
STREAMS

ASSOCIATION CORTICES
REASSEMBLE EVERYTHING INTO
WHAT YOU ACTUALLY SEE

EXPERIMENT TIME
1 MINUTE TO LOOK AT YOUR PAPER
WITH YOUR GROUP OF 4, WRITE WHAT YOU REMEMBER

PLEASE DO NOT TALK TO THE OTHER HALF OF THE ROOM

PICTORIAL SUPERIORITY EFFECT:


YOU WILL LEARN AND REMEMBER
BETTER THROUGH PICTURES
THAN THROUGH WORDS.
BECAUSE THE BRAIN INTERPRETS
WORDS AS A SERIES OF PICTURES

WHICH DOG WILL YOU REMEMBER BEST?


WE REMEMBER
PICTURES WITH COLOR
AND SIMPLICITY

(THE FOLLOWING SLIDES ARE THE MOST


IMPORTANT FOR THE TEST)

WHY IS OUR VISION NOT 100% ACCURATE?


2 EYES = 2 DIFFERENT VIEWS THAT MUST BE COMBINED INTO ONE
BLIND SPOT

WHAT DO THE ASSOCIATION CORTICES DO?


FINAL STEP OF SEEING
ASSEMBLE DIVIDED SIGNALS INTO THE IMAGES WE ACTUALLY SEE

WHAT DOES THE RETINA DO?


DOES NOT WORK LIKE A CAMERA
SLIGHTLY ALTERS LIGHT BY INTERPRETING ITS PATTERNS

WHAT IS THE PICTORIAL SUPERIORITY


EFFECT?
YOU LEARN BETTER THROUGH PICTURES THAN WORDS
THIS IS BECAUSE THE CORTEX ONLY SEES PICTURES. WHEN HEARING
WORDS, IT MUST CHANGE THEM TO PICTURES.

IF YOUR SENSES DISAGREE, WHICH WILL


THE BRAIN TRUST?
