Perception to Conception is the phenomenon of our mind by which we experience the virtual reality of this world. Sight, sound, smell, and taste are sensory systems, that inform the mind to form its concepts. Conscious perception of this outer world is created in the brain using Bottom-up and Top-down processing. The databases formed in the different parts of the brain add meaning to our perception at every step. The final conception of that particular experience is very unique and different for each person. This uniqueness depends upon the nature, nurture society, and culture in which that person that person had lived

Two-way processingBottom-up and Top-down are the phenomena that create everyone’s reality about this world. Let us examine how this process occurs in our minds. Visual information picked up by the eyes is sent to the area of the brain at the back of the opposite hemisphere, that is occipital lobe of the brain. From here Bottom-up process begins and perceptual information travels upward. At the same time, the Top-Down process starts from the frontal lobe of the brain. Conceptual information ( memories, expectations, and other clues stored in the databases}, travels backward from the frontal lobe of the brain. It goes on adding meaning and pieces of information at each step. The limbic system adds pieces of information related to emotion attached to that information. Thus it integrates the perception into the conceptual framework. The final integrated Concept is unique and very different for every individual.

Gibson believes that only the Bottom-up process is sufficient for the final conception. According to him a pattern of light that reaches the eyes, the optic array. Contains all the information necessary to understand it. His theory translates to “what you see is what you get.” Because all the information, you get is enough to help you survive in any environment around you. Direction Perception – makes Direction conception. No intermediate database is required

Psychologist Richard Gregory’s (1970) view was that perception is a constructive process that relies on top-down processing. —Information from our environment is perplexing to interpret it. For this is needed, higher cognitive information either from past experiences or stored knowledge to make inferences about what we perceive.

MY VIEW-We see, that in daily life everybody has different conceptions about the same thing or person. Suppose a person has cheated someone, helped someone, and had a quarrel with another. In this case person is the same for everyone (Perception about the person) but everybody has different concepts about him. For one he will be a cheater, someone will call him a good person and another person may call him a goon because he intimidated him.

It was because everyone’s stored database in the brain has different information about him. Thus we can infer that during the Top-down process, different meanings were added to the incoming bottom-up information to complete their final conceptual experience.                                                                                                                                       Satish Tripathi sctri48
