An Optometrist Looks at Perception.
Gould, Lawrence N.
The relationships of sense modalities included in the broad term "perception" are explored. Vision is a transmission from external world to brain. Ocular mobility and spatial organization abilities are important to vision as it is involved in the perceptual-cognitive process. Kinesthetic and visual behaviors are interrelated and are supplemented by the haptic modality (sense of touch). Auditory perception produces imagery that far surpasses the kinesthetic or haptic senses and, in fact, rivals the visual sense as the major mode of learning. Teaching methods based on these sense modalities should endeavor to present a problem through one modality and then require a maximum number of modalities to be integrated into the response. Available materials which use this technique are listed, and references are included. (MD)
