NAME

Sensory systems

DESCRIPTION

Sensory systems include the parts of the nervous system responsible for processing sensory information, including the visual system, auditory system, olfactory system, somatosensory system, gustatory system and vestibular system. Sensory systems are composed of receptors that sense the sensory stimuli, brain areas involved in sensory perception and neural pathways that connect them.
