Transcript of "Sensation and perception"

  1. 1. Sensation and Perception<br />TOUCH(one of the skin senses)<br />
  2. 2. INDEX<br />DEFINITIONS OF SENSATION AND PERCEPTION.<br />DEFINITION OF PSYCHOLOGY.<br />SOMESTHETIC SENSES.<br /> 1. SKIN SENSES ;<br /> 2. VESTIBULAR SENSE ;<br /> 3. KINESTHETIC SENSE.<br />
  3. 3. The twin brothers-Sensation and Perception <br />Sensation<br />Perception<br />Sensation:- is just the raw experience of a stimuli by sense organs – eyes, nose, skin, ears, tongue.<br />Perception:-is the interpretation, analysis, of stimuli leading to resulting behavior or in simple words processing the response based on stimuli.<br />
  4. 4. Lets get to the beginning or inception or root.<br />
  5. 5. What is psychology and why we are studying sensation and perception in it?<br />Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental process. Behavior includes all our outward or overt actions and reaction, such as talking, facial expression, and movement.<br />And,<br />the final outcome of sensation and perception is the behavior or response and also how a person takes things from his angle.(perception)<br />Thus, it has become a mandatory field to study Sensation and Perception<br />
  6. 6. SOMESTHETIC SENSES<br />
  7. 7. What is the Somesthetic Sense?<br />Soma means “body” and esthetic means “feeling”. So, the word somesthetic means bodily senses.<br />Or the senses a human body possesses. <br />
  8. 8. What are the Somesthetic Senses?<br />1. SKIN SENSES<br />2. VESTIBULAR SENSES<br />3. KINESTHETIC SENSES<br />
  9. 9. SKIN<br />

  12. 12. VESTIBULAR SENSE<br />
  13. 13. VESTIBULAR SENSE<br />It is a sense of balance and equilibrium.<br />It is determined by the orientation of the head in relation to the <br /> gravity, as well as by movement and acceleration of our bodies <br /> through space.<br />Its receptors are in inner ear.<br />4. It comprises vestibular sacs and semicircular canals, both contain<br /> fluid that moves when the head rotates, causes the hair cell inside <br /> those sacs and canals, to bend.<br />5. This mechanical energy is then transduced into electrochemical<br /> impulse and is sent for processing in the brain.<br />

  15. 15. KINESTHETIC SENSE<br />
  16. 16. KINESTHETIC SENSE<br />1. Helps us to ascertain our skeleton movement and body positioning<br /> coordinating or relating different body parts with each other.<br />2. Its receptors are in muscles, tendons, joints and skin.<br />3. When they detect change in position via pressure, they transduce<br /> this mechanical energy into neural energy. This energy in turn<br /> codes information about speed of the change, the angle of the body <br /> and the tension of the muscles<br />4. This information is sent to spinal chord where it reaches brain then<br /> to somatosensory cortex and to the cerebellum.<br />5. Which results in automatic process and coordination.<br />

  18. 18. CONCLUSION<br />To drive a car we need a car then the petrol then <br />other things similarly to be a human we need <br />to have a physique then soul and others things, <br />as they say.<br />And the SOMERSTHETIC SENSES are the windows<br />and the feelings of a human body, that actually<br />make human beings to feel their and others<br />presence in this never starting and never ending<br />universe.<br />
