According to the text written by Morris & Maisto (2005) and Christopher Smith (2009), the outline below lists the three main sensory systems: Tactile System - is the largest sensory system in the human body. This is the sense obtained trough touching processes such as shaking hands, hugging, and many BEH 225

Some information goes through the medulla and the thalamus before it is sent to the sensory cortex in the parietal lobe of the brain—which is presumably where our experiences of touch arise (Christopher Smith, 2009). Visual System- is the sensory system with the eye as a sensory organ. External stimuli such as lights enter the eye through the pupil, and then through the lens it moves to the retina, which is situated at the back of the eye (Morris & Maisto, 2005). Auditory System’s - sense organ is the ear. The ear is composed of three areas, the outer, inner and middle ear. The outer and middle ear channel sound waves to the eardrum where nerve impulses are produced and interpreted by the brain as sound (Christopher Smith, 2009). References: Morris, C.G., & Maisto, A.A.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
