    • Gestalt 1:25
      • Cognitive Viewpoint
      • German Word Meaning Pattern or Whole

      • The Ability to See Objects in Three Dimensions Although The Images That Strike the Retina are Two Dimensional; Allows Us To Judge Distance
      • How and When Do We Perceive That?
      • Visual Cliff
      • A Demonstration That Shows Babies of a Certain Age Do Not Possess Depth Perception
      • Ability Develops With Age and Needs of Species
      • Developed by Gibson and Walk

      • Relative Height
      • Relative Size
      • Interposition
      • Linear Perspective
      • Relative Motion
      • Light and Shadow
    • Depth Perception: Monocular Cues 17:59
      • Relative Height
    • Depth Perception: Monocular Cues 18:38
      • Relative Size -- In Two-Dimensional Drawings or Paintings You Assume Smaller Things Are Further Away Since They Are Likely Similar Size
    • Depth Perception: Monocular Cues 19:47
      • Interposition -- If One Object Blocks Our View of Another Object, We Assume That It Is Closer
    • Depth Perception: Monocular Cues 20:32
      • Linear Perspective -- When Parallel Lines Seem to Converge In the Distance, The More They Converge, the Greater the Distance
    • Depth Perception: Monocular Cues 21:24
      • Linear Perspective -- Example Two (Train Tracks)
    • Depth Perception: Monocular Cues 21:55
      • Relative Motion: As We Move, Objects That Are Actually Stable May Appear To Move -- e.g. While Riding in a Car, You May Fix Your Eyes on a House -- The Objects Beyond that Point May Appear to Move With You -- Objects in Front of That Object Appear to Move Backward
      • Increase Distance From the Fixation Point Increases Perceived Speed
    • Review 22:52
      • Describe at Least Three Gestalt Principles That Impact Our Perceptions
      • Describe at Least Three Monocular Cues That Allow People to See Depth
      • Describe The Primary Binocular Cue
