  1. Accretion and Deletion
    The apparent appearance and disappearance of elements of a visual stimulus, such as its texture or pattern
  2. Amodal Properties
    Properties of events that are not specific to a particular sensory modality, such as the synchrony of a sight and its accompanying sound
  3. Auditory Localization
    The ability to detect the location of sound sources
  4. Bayley Scales of Infant Development-Second Edition
    A widely use assesssment that includes scales for measuring motor development from birth to 42 months of age
  5. Binocular Disparity
    Slightly different retinal images that are produced when a viewer looks at a single object or visual stimulus
  6. Binocular Vision
    Visual input from two eyes that are aligned and move together
  7. Cones
    Phonoreceptors in the eye that respond to specific hues, or wavelengths of light
  8. Cross-Modal Perception
    The ability to transfer information about an object from one sense, such as vision, and use it when encountering the object later using a different sense, such as touch
  9. Depth Perception
    The ability to perceive a three-dimensional world
  10. Ecological Theory of Perception
    A theory that assumes that the visual system perceives meaningful information directly from the properties of the environment
  11. Fine Motor Skills
    Skills, such as grasping small objects, that involve movements of the fingers and hands
  12. Forced-Choice Preferential Looking
    A research procedure in which infants are shown two visual stimuli simultaneously and the total amount of time they spend looking at each display is compared
  13. Fovea
    The center of the eye
  14. Gross Motor Skills
    Skills, such as crawling and walking, that involve movements of the whole body and large muscle groups
  15. Haptic Information
    Exploratory mouth of hand movements that go well beyond mere tactile contact with an object
  16. Intermodal Perception
    The ability to integrate multiple simultaneous sources of sensory information, such as sights and sounds produced by a single object or event
  17. Kinematic Depth Cues
    Information about perceptual depth that is carried by motion
  18. Kinesthetic Sense
    A sense that conveys information about the body's position and movement
  19. Optical Expansion and Contraction
    The increase and decrease in the size of an object's image on the retina
  20. Pictorial Depth Cues
    Information about perceptual depth that is used in two-dimensional representations of the three-dimensional world, including relative size, linear perspective, texture gradients, and interposition
  21. Proprioceptive Sense
    A sense that conveys information from muscles, tendons, and joints about the body's position and movement
  22. Size Constancy
    The ability to perceive an object's actual size correctly, even when it is viewed from different distances
  23. Stereoscopic Depth Information
    Information about perceptual depth that is produced by binocular disparity
  24. Vestibular Sense
    A sense that conveys information about physical balance and support
  25. Visual Acuity
    The smallest spacing that can be perceived between parts of a pattern
  26. Visual Cortex
    The area of the brain that processes visual information
