Sensory information processing

Sensory information processing

  • The Sensory organs

  • The auditory organ

  • The visual organ

  • The tactile organ

  • The vestibular organ

  • the proprioceptive organ

  • the taste organ

  • The smell organ

Sensory information processing



Alertness level



Wake up






Degree of alertness

Sensory information processing

The influence on the arousal level







Sensory information processing

How does your engine run


The engine turned hard


The engine turned just right

just right

The motor turned slowly


Sensory information processing

  • Auditory system

  • Processing of the sound vibration

  • Integration of the information

  • understanding the information

Sensory information processing

  • Tactile system

  • Notice system

  • Protective system

  • stress

  • Pysical signs

    • blush

    • Become pale

    • the breathing gets deep
