WATCH OUT for the VISUAL CLIFF
Transcript of WATCH OUT for the VISUAL CLIFF
History Of The Visual Cliff
. was one of the most anecdotes in psychology concerns.
He had been blind his entire life until he was
Even though his sight was restored.
However even if

Is depth perception part of our nature or a developed skill?

is a solid surface with a checkered pattern
Under the other half is the same pattern
But it is down at the level of the floor underneath the table
In other words,he did not automatically perceive depth the same way the
As we are talking about cars here is a good advertisement for our subject.
Gibson and Walk took a
position on this topic.
They defended that depth perception is
The opposite view ,held by

What stage in development can a person or animal respond effectively to the stimuli of depth and height?
Do animal learn depth perception at different times?
The subjects were
.Also infant of mothers participated.
The infants were placed on a center board and their mothers called them on one end of table.
They repeated the test with
baby chicks,turtles,rats,lambs,goats,pigs,kittens and puppies
to test if other species noticed the cliff.
Let's look at he experiment!
Let's look at the visual cliff
We mentioned babies' and animals' reactions of visual cliff.
So, What About Adults?

A later study placed babies ages
the glass over a deep side of the visual cliff showed the babies decrease in heart rate,
being a sign of interest not fear.
The mothers were told to make happy faces for the baby to crawl over the cliff and scared faces for the baby to have hesitation whether to stay on the shallow side or the deep side.
Importance Of Social Referencing
Scientist Strickland developed a system that incorporates virtual reality to help
safely interact with around them.
Another study is by Berger and Adolph (2003) to test
how babies recognize the height.
They used the bridges of different
