This paper explains that the first article about perception and the human experience was by Potter about the relationships between three-dimensional spatial perception and "pass rates" in engineering graphics. Next, the author reports on an article by Gabbard that examines "reach estimation" in children, on a similar article by Schicke about how information about the position of a perceived target object and on a project by Tzvetanov about the dependency of human perceptual skills on neurons within the sensory cortex. From a more social aspect, the paper also reviewed the relationship of poor academic performance to perception as studied by Noland and another study by Carlson about dental students' perceptions of their patient's personality and socioeconomic status.

From the Paper:

"In another aspect of perception, the subject of poor academic performance is featured in an article in the Journal of School Health. Noland points out that the amount of sleep an adolescent gets has an affect on an individual's health, and too little sleep can negatively affect academic work, and has been associated with "unintentional injuries" and "obesity" in adolescents. The central question in this research is how do adolescent's "perceive and deal with" issues surrounding sleep. The researchers "randomly selected" general education classes in three high schools in the Midwest, and had three hundred and eighty-four students (9th through 12th grades) complete "self-administered valid and reliable questionnaires" on perceptions of sleep."
"Another article related to perception is found in the journal Psychology and Health and involves 62 dental students with two or three years clinical training and 39 dental students in their second "pre-clinical" year of study. The question at hand is psychosocial in nature. To wit, how did each group of dental students perceive and rate a patient's personality and socioeconomic status, communication skills and dental condition based on listening to an audiotaped interview between a dentist and the patient (who had an accent)."
