The cross-cultural studies seem to indicate that history and culture play an important part in how we perceive our environment. Theories of perception and the concept of structure. Hudson tested pictorial depth perception by showing participants a picture like the one below. Perceptual set is broader than situational context, since it may involve either long-term for instance, cultural prior experience or, as in this case, short-term or situational factors Murch Five main definitions of the scope of the term ‘context’ have been listed here in relation to their potential influence on perception: Deregowski argued that this split-style representation is universal and is found in European children before they are taught differently.

He found people from several cultures prefer drawings which don’t show perspective, but instead are split so as to show both sides of an object at the same time. An incorrect interpretation is that the elephant is nearer and about to be speared.

The alternative hypothesis however is bugelsku there will be a difference depending on which images were seen by the participants. I have referred already, in Visual Perception 3to the importance of individual factors which can have an influence on perception. His findings suggest that perceiving perspective in drawings is in fact a specific cultural skill, which is learned rather than automatic.


A good example of the role of top-down processes is where you think that you recognize someone in the street and then realize from sensory data that you are wrong.

The results were then interpreted using chi square which is a statistical test that allows accuracy of results to be seen. It seems clear to me that the picture has no objective identity by itself, and that all of its coherence is a reflection of the kind of sense that the subject can make out of it. For instance, in a sixteenth-century anonymous engraving of a famous scene from the white man’s history an artist depicted a sailing vessel anchored offshore with a landing party of elegantly dressed gentlemen disembarking while regal, Europeanized Indians look on – one carrying a ‘peace pipe’ expressly for this festive occasion.

Results showed no discrimination on the recognition test – they were completely unable to tell old forms from new ones, but participants could discriminate on the feeling test, as they consistently favored old alanpay over new ones.

According to Vernon, perceptual set works in two ways:. Perceptual identification and perceptual alampy, Journal of General Psychology What is the man doing? A shorter time of exposure was necessary for people to name the normal cards than the anomalous ones.

Bugelskki bottom row is actually a little more vertically squished looking to me, but I believe it works well enough to demonstrate the point.

Perceptual set theory stresses the idea of perception as an active process involving selection, inference and interpretation. I have mentioned that situational contexts generate certain short-term expectations but it is worth noting in bugellski that expectations may also be set up by longer-term bugelsmi – such as by stereotypes, prejudices and past experience.


The second part is where the perceiver knows how to classify name and interpret certain data bugelsku therefore know what to bugelsik from it, he calls this the perceiver. They were unfamiliar with what was happening to them and so they misunderstood their experience.

Perceptual Set by Saul McLeodupdated Some of these were alluded to in Visual Perception 3.

Selectivity and Perceptual Constancy Visual Perception 4: The functions of schemata in perceiving.

Method In order to test this a sample involving the whole of the psychology class was taken making it an opportunity sample, some of the class were given stimulus cards depicting animals where the rest had cards with people bugwlski. The main aim almapay this experiment however is to replicate the study of perception conducted by Bugelski and Alampay who investigated the importance of expectation in the perceptual set, they found that those who had previously been shown images of animals were more likely to see the stimulus as being a rat because they had preconceived expectations.

Finally, an emphasis on the structural context stresses structural features and relationships such as the relationship between one line and another ‘in’ what is wlampay – though the extent to which there is agreement about even such low-level formal features may vary.

Such cues are important because they convey information about the spatial relationships among the objects in pictures.
