How does the brain process sensory stimuli?

The environment is full of sensory stimuli/ information which we pick up through sensory receptors all over our body.

These sensory receptors are mainly concentrated in our hands, feet, lips, mouth, tongue, eyes, ears, nose and skin.

There are seven different types of receptors related to each of the seven senses. Each receptor is responsible for picking up sensory information and passing this information to our brain for processing which involves organising, prioritising, understanding and responding to the information.
