Attention, Perception, and Consciousness as They Relate to Imaging Techniques, Theories of Attention, Size Judgments, and the Ponzo and Muller-Lyer Illusions
This paper presents and discusses research obtained from an extensive literature review that was conducted in order to examine four discrete areas of attention, perception and consciousness. The areas that were examined were related to imaging techniques, theories of attention, perceptual judgments of size, and to the Ponzo and Muller-Lyer illusions. The focus of each area examined was a response to a stipulated question or statement and is presented in relation to each questio/statement. The paper also includes an annotated outline of the material discussed in each area. The outline identifies where supporting references are integrated into the final paper.
This section of the paper provides an overview of the research material covered, noting that the material discussed is in four discrete areas of attention, perception and consciousness. Each area is listed as imaging techniques, theories of attention, perceptual judgments of size, and the Ponzo and Muller-Lyer illusions.
B. Research Findings for Questions and Statements on Imagining Techniques, Theories of Attention, Perceptual Judgements of Size, and the Ponzo and Muller-Lyer Illusions.
1. Imaging Techniques - This section of the paper discusses the use of X rays, CT scans, and MRIs in relation to cognitive psychology. Each imaging technique is briefly described and discussed in terms of its contributions to cognitive psychology. Existing problems with each technique are listed as well as potential hazards to physical health. Each imaging technique is also discussed in terms of its future possibilities.
a) X-rays. This section of the paper discusses X-rays, noting that they are passed through the body to produce an image (Supporting references will be derived from basic books on imaging in ge...
