Sensations

Sensations are possible due to the process of capturing and transforming information from the environment into energy recognized as such by the nervous system.

Sensations are always ahead of time-scale perceptions. Perceptions represent the interpretation of captured information, giving them a sense. Stimulus is all that information that acts directly or indirectly on our sense organs.

Forms of sensations, perceptions – after the organ of feeling: sensations and hearing perceptions (ears)

-visual

-olfactive (nose)

-cutanate (skin)

Differential threshold – the minimum amount added or low that makes the difference between sensations of the same kind.

Sensory attack – is the increase or decrease in sensitivity as a result of repeated stimulation. Sensory Contrast – is the body’s ability to value two or more stimuli different in intensity.

-successive

-simultaneous.

The absolute minimum- maximum threshold is the minimum or maximum amount added or low that makes the difference between sensations of the same kind.

It occurs when a sensation of a certain type influences another type of sensation in the sense of diminishing or accentuating it.
