I took the exam last year. It's one of the easier exams, so don't worry too much. Most important is understanding a few key concepts and terms per task. I think the course coordinators do a good job at pointing out what you have to know. If you have any questions pertaining to whether something is relevant or need an additional explanation, I might be able to help out.

They found out that size estimation gets worse when using visual angle when depth information is not available

One one side of the hallway there was a comparison circle and on the other one a test circle; the participant wasn't able to use depth cues and had to change the size of the comparison circle to match the size of the test circle
If for example a friend is talking to you, and suddenly there's a loud noise (the auditory mask) like a car going by, it will sound like the person was still talking (in other words, the talking was a continuous sound) even though that might not necessarily be the case. In a way it's an illusion. You can compare this with the gestalt principle of good continuation = the brain will continue the noise, similar to how it might continue a line in the visual system.
There was a question about the gestalt laws in the exam questions on the studentportal, i thought that these laws are something like short cuts ( heuristics) and in the most time they work good , but that was the wrong answer :/ can someone maybe explain that again?
"If one can demonstrate that a lesion in brain structure A impairs function X but not Y, and further demonstrate that a lesion to brain structure B impairs function Y but spares function X, one can make more specific inferences about brain function and function localization."
Basically what Fourier Analysis does is> The ear receives input as complex as towards the end of the video (complex tone) and the fourier analysis finds the length of the bars that contribute to it (the frequencies that together make up the complex tone) . Every complex wave is made up of simple waves.
Does anyone have the right answers for the Method and technique questions and is willing to share them with me? :) I am a third year student and i'm not able to participate in the course anymore.. It would be really helpful.
Thanks a lot in advance!!
Samantha, thats incorrect...
both go through the thalamus (LGN), then the V1. The "what"/ventral pathway then goes to the temporal lobe, and the "where"/how/dorsal pathway goes to the parietal lobe. Both pathways work together, and send feedback to the V1. Remember dorsal means towards the back/up=parietal. Ventral means towards the chest/down=temporal.
Is anyone else having issues with the recordings? I've got so many blanks from perception lectures that I wanted to go through them but none of them are playing and it says media error? Unless somebody has full lecture notes they wouldn't mind sharing? Specifically for the overviews would be fab!
it happens because of the grouping by similarity of pitch. all the low-pitch tones are grouped together and the high-pitch tones are grouped together :) if the first tone your right ear receives is high, all the high tones will be assigned to the right ear and vice versa (first tone low --> all low tones)

It is one melody (of high and low tones) that goes to the right ear and another melody of high + low tones that goes to the other ear. -> your brains receives 2x input and combines it with al high tones in the right ear + low tones in the left ear.
Regarding the different law's of task 1: did you only speak in detail about the mathematical principle behind Weber? Or also the Weber-Fechner adoption and Steven? Or is it only necessary to understand the meaning of the latter two?
Is it just me or who else found this exam easy? I didn't make a single mistake and I feel like the real exam is gonna be a lot harder...
Do you guys think there will be more detailed questions than this?
