The representation of something; delineation; plan; especially, the representation of any object on a perspective plane, or such a delineation as would result were the chief points of the object thrown forward upon the plane, each in the direction of a line drawn through it from a given point of sight, or central point; as, the projection of a sphere. The several kinds of projection differ according to the assumed point of sight and plane of projection in each.

Any act or process of throwing forward. In the physiology of the senses this term is used to denote the fact that we refer some of the sensations to the point in the body at which the stimulus acts, or to some point outside of the body at which the stimulus originates. The most perfect projection is made with visual sensations; each point on the retina, when stimulated, gives a sensation which is projected to the exterior along the secondary axis, passing through the point stimulated and the nodal point of the eye.
By Smith Ely Jelliffe
