COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL ch Ap te r 2 Development of the Senses Humans learn through their senses. The senses bring external information about the surrounding physical environment to the brain. External stimuli are received and conducted by sensory receptors in the eyes, the ears, the nose, the skin, and the tongue and are transmitted to the brain. The stimulation from the senses causes the wiring of the brain to take place. The senses are: • Hearing • Seeing • Touching • Tasting • Smelling • Kinesthetic sense (moving and balancing) 13 COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
