Perceptual Constancy



Perceptual Constancy:

+ add to my flashcards cite this term

Perceptual constancy is the ability to recognize that an object or organism has not changed (remained the same object or organism) even though other stimuli have changed. For example, when you go to a school reunion you will be able to recognize the other people from your class even though their physical characteristics may have changed such as increased weight, hair loss, etc.
