How does experience affect object recognition and visual perception?
Experience plays a key role in object recognition and visual perception. Visual perception is one sense of an individual's body that allows his or her brain to interpret what is seen. Object recognition is an individual's ability to recognize an object and its physical properties. Experience shapes both object recognition and visual perception. An individual's brain guesses at what that individual sees based on his or her past experiences. Visual perceptions are hypotheses based on an individual's stored information and past experiences. Through experiences an individual can determine and understand what an object actual is, how it relates to him or her as far as its purpose, and determine how it relates to the world instead of perceiving the object for what it is not. Object recognition and visual perception differ from individual to individual based on pervious past experiences.
