Perception occurs when the brain processes information to give meaning to it, by means of emotions, memories, etc.
Sensation and perception are interrelated processes that are developed throughout the lifespan.
Although they have a close relationship, sensation and perception have discrete qualities that differentiate one from the other.
These signals are transmitted to the sensory cortices of the brain.
The line of difference between sensation and perception is now drawn; perception follows sensation.
Perception refers to the occurrence when the brain performs organization of information it obtains from the neural impulses, and then begins the process of translation and interpretation.
It is a vital process that helps us rationalize or make sense of the information related to the physical stimulus.
They work together for us to be able to identify and create meaning from stimuli-related information.
Without sensation, perception will not be possible, except for people who believe in extrasensory perception or ESP.
In this case, perception happens when the brain interprets the sensory information and sends corresponding signals to sensory organs for response to the physical stimuli.
