2: Discuss the place theory and the temporal theory of pitch perception, point out the problems with both theories, and illustrate ways in which they both contribute to pitch perception.
3: Decide how flavor is a multisensory experience. You should emphasize the chemical senses, but also draw on other senses. Use examples from your own life to illustrate these principles when you can.
4: A frequent issue in developmental psychology is the nature-nurture question. What would you conclude about the components of face and speech perception? What implications does your conclusion suggest for the development of language?
