Ep 199: Depth Perception – How Your Brain Sees What’s Not There

PlayPlay

How do you create a sense of depth in a flat image? In this video I’ll show you how to use 5 cues of depth perception to turn a flat image into one that looks like it has depth. I’ll be drawing from terms you would learn about in a chapter from a psychology text on Sensation and Perception. We’ll have a little fun exploring how we can use what your brain expects to see to trick it into seeing what we want it to see.

    Depth perception

    Depth perception is the visual ability to perceive the world in three dimensions ( 3D) and the distance of an object. Depth sensation is the corresponding term for animals, since although it is known that animals can sense the distance of an object (because of their ability to move accurately, or to respond consistently, according to that distance), it is not known whether they "perceive" it in the same subjective way that humans do.

    The process of perception involves synthesizing, organizing, and interpreting sensory information in a meaningful way. Researchers often describe perceptual processing as occurring in two basic ways. The first is known as bottom-up processing, and it involves making sense of ambiguous information, kind of like assembling the individual pieces of a puzzle when you don't know what the final image will look like.

    Darn .MP4 format. I listen at work but we can't load any of what I would need to watch it due to server restrictions on program loading. Can it be converted to a different format and given a link, or is it, in its final state, absolutely set?

  2. Eric, the .mov version is a very large file. I'm not sure where I'd be able to host a file that big. Is there any other video format you were thinking of?
