General | Latest Info

Ways we understand and perceive the world around us as humans are known as senses. We have five traditional senses known as taste, smell, touch, hearing, and sight. Stimuli from each sensing organ in the body are relayed to different parts of the brain through various pathways. Sensory information is transmitted from the peripheral nervous system to the central nervous system. The structure of the brain called thalamus receives most sensory signals and passes them along to the appropriate area of the cerebral cortex to be process. Sensory information regarding smell, however, is sent directly to the olfactory bulb and not to the thalamus. Visual information is processed in the visual cortex of the occipital lobe, sound is processed in the auditory cortex of the temporal lobe, smells are processed in the olfactory cortex of the temporal lobe, touch sensations are processed in the somatosensory cortex of the parietal lobe, and taste is processed in the gustatory cortex of parietal lobe. The limbic system is composed of a group of brain structures that play vital role in sensory perception, sensory interpretation, and motor function. The Amygdala, for example, receives sensory signals from the thalamus and uses information in processing of emotions such as fear, anger, and pleasure. It also determines what memories are stored and where memories are stored in the brain. The hippocampus is important in forming new memories and connecting emotions and senses, such as smell and sound, to memories. The Hypothalamus helps regulate emotional responses elicited by sensory information through release of hormones that act on the pituitary gland in response to stress. The olfactory cortex receives signals from olfactory bulb for processing and identifying odors. In all, limbic system structures take information perceived from five senses, as well as other sensory information to make sense of the world around us.

Beyond the Five Senses

We might also gain senses that no other animal has. The vibrating vest Eagleman created can be program to receive any input, not just sound. He said it could be used to monitor the stock market, or sentiment on Twitter, or pitch and yaw of drone, or one own vital signs. You could, of course, display these things on a computer screen, but our brains ca attend to lots of visual details at once, Eagleman say. The body, on the other hand, is used to monitoring dozens of muscles just to keep us balanced, so would be more adept at handling multidimensional inputs.

Sight

Talk to children about objects, asking them to share information about them. For example, if you hold up a block, ask child to describe it by telling you not only that it is a block, but color, size, shape, etc. Other objects to try are musical instruments, foods, and flowers. The objective is to help children see that they use their sense of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and feel to observe the world around them. Talk to children about observations they make based on these Five Senses. This worksheet from education. Com offer pictures of items to prompt children to consider whether they are seeing them or using one of their other senses. The Worksheet instructions children to circle things below that you can see, but can't touch. Look around and use your sense of sight to find something in the room. Draw a picture of it. Then, imagine you are looking at an object through magnifying glass. Draw what you would see inside magnifying glass. This exercise enhances understanding of sight, while encouraging children to build reasoning skills. This worksheet from TLSBOOKS. Com also asks children to look at several pictures and instructs them to circle things they can see, but not touch.
