Introduction to ‘The Senses’

Our senses work together to help us understand what is happening in our immediate environment and allow us to respond to any changes. Our sensory systems integrate with each other and are also influenced by each other. Each sense picks up information from outside our body (such as the things we can see or hear) or from inside our body (such as when we are feeling full or hungry) using specialised cells called receptors.
