Psychology 1300 Agan Notes  Week 5 Sensation & Perception  5 Senses: sight, touch, taste, smell, hear  Sensation: process of picking up information that is transferred to the brain  Perception: process by which the brain organizes and process the  information that has been picked up  Two types of perception:  o Bottom­up: data driven processing, this is “just the facts” o Top­down: based on previous experiences and conceptual knowledge  that is applied to recognizing patterns   What is the relationship between sensation and perception? o Sensation is the process of using the senses to gather information  around us while perception is the way we interpret and put to use the  information that we have gathered from sensation.  What is the sense that refers to the position and movement of body parts in  relation to one another? o This is called kinesthesia. For example, this sense could help us to  touch our nose if our eyes were closed because it remembers the  position and movement of the body and how they all relate.   What is a gustatory delight? o Gustatory deals with taste, so this could be anything that tastes good  to you.   Why do women, in general, have much more pain tolerance than men? o Women have higher estrogen levels than men do and those neurons  are better at using endorphins.   What is the effect of having a cell phone turned on when driving? o In­attentional blindess. This is basically the same as having your  attention diverted to thinking about your phone and who is  texting/calling you, and essentially makes you blind when driving  because you’re focused on something else.   What is an illusion? o A false perception of an actual stimulus in the environment Boundaries o System of setting limits to control one’s self and to others effect on  one’s self o Boundaries are like a mason jar around us; we can control how we are affected by what’s coming in and we can control how we act upon it   This concept also goes into a healthy ego development  External boundaries o Skin, touch, this is physicality.  o A healthy external boundary needs closeness but also distance away  from others to be by one’s self  Internal boundaries o Thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs, perceptions, values, worldview. o  We have the right to have boundaries and a right to not to impose it  on others  Partial boundaries o We learn to close vulnerable spots o We don’t let as much come in our “mason jar” as a defense  mechanism   Purpose of boundaries o Increase our freedom and human connectedness by keeping us from  being a victim or an offender  3 choices with boundaries o Yes, no, or maybe o Without boundaries we develop walls as a defense mechanism for  self­protection  Common walls that deal with boundaries o Anger, fear, humor/sarcasm, talking too much, food, sex, religion,  intellectualism, work  A healthy boundary system o We keep our boundaries but we tear down the walls and this grows  our individualism and keeps us growing and developing as a person
