Each receptor has a ‘receptive field’ – that area of the field of view where, if there is light of the right wavelength present, the receptor will respond to it. If it is dark in that area of the visual field, or the wavelength of the light is outside the receptor’s range of sensitivity, the receptor will not respond. The responses of all the receptors are then carried from the eye by retinal ganglion cells, the axons of which make up the optic nerve. The optic nerve passes back through the retina, and as there are no receptors at this point, each eye has a ‘blind spot’ – although this is not usually perceived, as the lack of vision in that spot is either covered by the other eye or ‘filled in’ by the brain.

Unlike Gibson’s theories, the constructivist approach does not assume that everything we need for perception is there in the visual stimulus. As mentioned, the assumption is that the visual input is not complete, and that we use what we already know (top-down) to fill in the gaps and interpret the sensory (bottom-up) information. In order to do this, Gregory suggested, we act as ‘scientists’, generating perceptual hypotheses (predictions) about what we may be seeing and testing those hypotheses against the sensory information coming in.
