Explain therelationship between smell and taste, and describe how they are sensed andperceived.The relationship between sensation and perception help balance each other out by workingtogether to be able to identify and create meaning behind stimuli-related information.Sensation is the conscious or subconscious awareness of changes in the external or internalenvironment.Sensations arise from the visceral and sensory afferents. Visceral afferentsrarely reach conscious level but are crucial for the appropriate efferent output to maintainhomeostasis of the internal environment; however, we can become aware of pain signalsarising from the viscera. Sensory afferents are derived from the body’s surface and arebroken into somatic sensations (arising from somesthetic sensation from the skin andproprioception from the muscles, joints, skin and inner ears), and special senses (hearing,vision, taste, and smell).Processing of the sensory input is essential for interaction with theenvironment for basic survival and adds immeasurably to the richness of life. Perceptionbecomes important from such as it is our conscious interpretation of the external worldcreated by the brain from a pattern of nerve impulses delivered to it from sensory receptors.We perceive sounds, colours, shapes, textures, smells, tastes and temperatures where wederive this information and create a response. In regards to sensations and perceptions,both go together to help us in interacting with the world around us, by being able to processa sensory input through a stimuli and create an appropriate response to such.Stimuli are perceived by a specialized receptor, such as photoreceptors being responsive tovisible wavelengths of light. However, chemoreceptors are sensitive to specific chemicals
