Perception

Perception is the organization of information obtained by sensory organs to represent and
understand the environment. Biologically, perception involves signals sent to the nervous
systems resulting from stimulation of the sensory organs. Perception is based on attention,
learning, memory, and expectation (Flanagan, 2008). Primary perception involves translating the
sensory input to information while secondary perception is the processing connected to a
person’s knowledge and attention. Perception content in the philosophy field refers to the items
conveyed by a perceptual experience to the individual. The cause and the contents are distinct
issues of perception. While perception is triggered by several things, its contents are different
from although related to its cause.
