Storyboard Text

  • Palmer's Study (1975)
  • Palmer
  • Aim and Sample
  • Method
  • Palmer wanted to find out whether context would affect perception.
  • Procedure
  • To find out whether context would affect perception, Palmer used 64 normal students.
  • Findings
  • Palmer carried out a lab experiment counting the number of correctly identified objects and giving participants four conditions that they must follow.
  • Conclusion
  • The participants were shown visual scenes of a kitchen and provided a context. Then they were given objects to identify a loaf, a mailbox and a drum. They were tested in each of the 4 conditions and the results of the correctly identified objects were counted.
  • The participants correctly identified the most objects after seeing an appropriate context and least after seeing an inappropriate context.
  • Expectations affect perception. People have a perceptual set based on context which affects how accurately they recognise objects.
