Sensory Information

Sensory Information are things that the brain collects from your senses that give you information about the world around you. The five basic senses are taste, sight, smell, hearing, and touch. Sensory information is collected from sensory receptors that are located throughout your body (such as photoreceptor cells in your eyes for vision and taste receptor cells on your tongue for taste) and then sent to the brain where it is processed. Some examples of sensory information are the smell of baking bread (smell), the feel of a wool sweater (touch), the taste of an apple (taste), a song (hearing), and a painting (sight).
