Look at the images below. Which image do you see first in each of four images in the gallery below? (To help, there is a question below each image.)
Look at them again. Can you see the other?
Perception: The recognition and interpretation of sensory information mainly on memory
Perception: The nerve processes of recognition and interpretation

Watch the video below.
As humans we encounter many things each day as our senses are constantly processing data. For example, the bottom of our feet can simultaneously distinguish contact with a sock, the inside of the shoe, the surface on which one is standing or moving.
Our senses allow us to experience the world around us. Take a moment to think of all the things you perceive on a daily basis.
Perception is about our sensory experience of the world around us and involves both the recognition of environmental stimuli and actions in response to these stimuli.
Perceptions include the organization, identification and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the environment.
What the short video below.
All perception involves signals in the nervous system, which in turn result from physical stimulation of the sense organs.
Perception depends on complex functions of the nervous system, but subjectively seems mostly effortless because this processing happens outside conscious awareness.
Perception is influenced by past experiences, the situation, the expectation, and the intensity of the perception.
