Quote: "The purpose of life is a life of purpose." - Attributed to both Ludwig Wittgenstein and Robert Byrne

If you learn only 4 things from this chapter for the AP Test...
1. Perception is the interpretation of sensory information; it relies on experience.
2. The difference between sensation & perception

Sensation and perception are areas that have been of interest to psychologists for most of the history of psychology. As we sit here, our senses receive literally thousands of messages. We need to make sense of this information. Our senses take in the information, and they do so from birth. Yet the interpretive part -perception- requires knowledge.

Essential Questions:
* How do we convert light into images?
* How does the ear responds to sound waves?
* How do we taste or smell?
* How does the somatic sensory system function?
