Inan ideal world, sensation and perception are two distinct but intertwined processes. Perception isthe process by which the brain organizes, chooses, and interprets other sensations. The sensationis the physical world that our receptors obtain, whereas perception is the process by which thebrain organizes, selects, and interprets other senses.
