Sensory Processing

Sensory Processing

Sensory Processing refers to the way a person’s nervous system receives sensory messages and turns them into responses. These senses include sight (vision), sound (auditory), touch (tactile), taste (gustatory), body position (proprioception) and movement (vestibular). Most people receive and organize these messages effortlessly into adaptive physiological and behavioral responses.
