  • Sensory Organs

    The way we sense things is how we perceive the world around us, and to also make sense of it all. The sensory organs I chose to explain are the nose, tongue, and ears and how they connect to the brain for our perception. As we inhale the scent of something, the molecules reach the receptor cells high in both nasal cavities. Then the axons from millions of these receptors carry nerve impulses directly to the olfactory bulb. The olfactory bulb is the smell center of the brain. From there, records are taken and the olfactory bulb transmits these impulses to the temporal lobes of the brain where they become experienced as smell. “This results in our ability to recognize around 10,000 different smells,” (Zou, Li, & Buck, 2005). How we taste: Taste buds are embedded in small lumps on the tongue, called papillae. When we eat, chemicals in food dissolve by the saliva and come into contact with the taste receptors within the taste buds. Then, adjacent neurons fire, and send nerve impulses to the brain’s parietal lobe…

  • Sensory Analysis

    Our cognition processes information coming from different channels of sensory modalities and integrates it smoothly. In most of the time we are not even aware of the modalities of the information, rather all we are conscious of is the information itself. Having more senses provides more accuracy in different dimensions of an event such as time and space. For example, one sense is less accurate about carrying time dimension of an event, while other is less accurate about estimating the location.…

  • What Is Sensory Adaptation?

    In Chapter 3, sensory adaptation is described as “the process in which sensory receptors grow accustomed to constant, unchanging levels of stimuli over time” (Wood, Wood, and Boyd, 2014. p.79). Sensory experiences themselves begin with the process of sensation and end with the process of perception. According to Wood, Wood, and Boyd (2014), sensation is “the process through which the senses pick up visual, auditory, and other sensory stimuli and transmit them to the brain” (p.76). Furthermore,…

  • The Importance Of Sensory Processing

    Sensory processing is the ability to neurologically organize information our body picks up from the environment around us. Sensory information is received from the peripheral nervous system, which consist of sensations from the skin, muscles and our senses, which then transmitted to the brain. The information is then integrated and the individual has an adaptive response. An individual is composed of eight senses, which are tactile, olfactory, gustatory, visual, auditory, vestibular,…

  • Comparative Sensory Physiology Lab Report

    Elizabeth Fernandez Professor Richardson General Biology 2 Lab Section 01 March 27, 2017 Comparative Sensory Physiology Lab Introduction: All animals have specialized receptor cells that are sensitive to certain inputs like sound, light and chemicals. When these receptor cells are stimulated a nerve impulse is sent across the body and into the central nervous system where the signal is perceived as one of the animals senses (taste, hearing, sight, smell, equilibrium, etc.). There are three…

  • Sensory Organ System: A Case Study

    1. One particular organ system that I consider to demonstrate the most significant age-related changes in the human body would be the Sensory System. The sensory system is composed of the five senses: vision, hearing, taste, smell, and touch, which all declines with age. However, the age that the changes occur and the rate of the sensory organ 's decline varies among people (Aldwin & Gilmer, 2013, Chapter 7). With age, these senses become less sharp, thus making it harder to notice details of…

  • Sensory Processing Disorder Case Study

    to be "normal"; even if it 's just for this one time. Reaching this monumental moment took years of commitment and therapy to help him cope with his sensitivity to sensory inputs. Jack has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a complex neurological condition that often leaves individuals feeling overwhelmed by sensory stimuli. In the past, little time and money were spent on studying this disorder, but lately this has changed. Increases in neuroatypical diagnosis amongst children compelled…

  • How Does Sensory Marketing Affect Consumer Behavior?

    Definition Traditionally there are 5 senses, sight, touch, taste, smell, and hearing. Sensory marketing is based on the theory that conscious awareness, embodied cognition, and bodily sensations help determine the decisions consumers make (The Science of Sensory Marketing, 2015). Establishing a sensory signature has become vital to specialists who are trying to make a lasting impression on consumers. Throughout this paper multiple forms of sensory marketing will be touched on. Why? Sensory…

  • Summary Of Sensory Processing Disorder

    If and when diagnosis is correctly done, a person suffering from Sensory Processing Disorder can start treatment for their conditions. Contrary to popular belief, the treatments in place to help patients with SPD is greatly flawed. According the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation (2015), treatment for SPD in children is often treated through occupational therapy, which tends to focus on identifying and eliminating any perceived barriers that prevent patients from being active participants…
