Our ability to recognize someone as either male or female is absolutely fundamental to our ability to interact with them. To see one of the deepest aspects of our identities, we have to go outside ourselves to the messages that surround us. Every society has to have a story about happiness… of how we can become happy, what we should strive for to be happy. If you set up 5 different accounts, from 5 different geographic areas, on different genders, on different ages, with different preferences… you will see 5 different ads… you will see 5 different worlds. What’s amazing when you look at Disney movies over the years…

is how little the image of females really change. If we take this broader view of media violence, we can see that significantly reducing violence involves much more than simply stopping young boys from playing violent video games or watching violent movies. It’s really hard to find baby paraphernalia that’s not plastered with media characters.

 

 

Perception (from the Latin perceptio) is the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the presented information, or the environment.

All perception involves signals that go through the nervous system, which in turn result from physical or chemical stimulation of the sensory system.For example, vision involves light striking the retina of the eye, smell is mediated by odor molecules, and hearing involves pressure waves.

Perception is not only the passive receipt of these signals, but it’s also shaped by the recipient’s learning, memory, expectation, and attention.

Perception can be split into two processes,  processing the sensory input, which transforms these low-level information to higher-level information (e.g., extracts shapes for object recognition), processing which is connected with a person’s concepts and expectations (or knowledge) and selective mechanisms (attention) that influence perception.
