                 Your sense organs are special parts of your body that make it possible to report to the brain conditions and changes that occur outside the body.  These organs register different types of stimuli to the brain from what we know as "five senses".

              The stimulations come from the outside world to the body through sense organs on the surface of the body. They trigger sensations such as, taste, vision, sound, touch, and smell.


                       How does your brain help you enjoy life?

                   Identify how your sense organs are connected to your brain.

                   What part does your spinal cord play in transferring stimuli from the outer to the inner?
