One of the most amazing abilities we take for granted is our body’s capability to sense and interact with the environment. Feeling that subtle gust of wind, catching the little flash of light, or being able to locate where a sound is coming from are a few of these impressive skills we all possess. Within this section, we will discuss the complexity of these senses and how our bodies go about converting these stimuli into perceptions. We will explore the five senses: vision, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. For each topic, we will learn about the structures involved and higher level processing that occurs in order to lead to the overall perception of the stimuli.
