Provide at least three reasons for believing in the accuracy or inaccuracy of sensory information.
If fortunate enough we all have five senses which are hearing, sight, touch, smell and taste. These senses enable us to be aware of our surrounding. There are many ways our senses can be helpful by giving our brain the right information or can be deceptive by tricking our minds.
Our senses prove its accuracy on daily bases. Smelling uses the noise that sends sensations to the brain. When we smell smoke we admittedly know there is a fire or something is burning. Then our sense sends a message to our brain that we need to take care of the problem or leave if it's too dangerous. The touch sensory is circulated throughout our body. When something is felt such as hot, cold or pain a sensation is sent to the brain. If when cooking, you accidently slid your hand against the stove burner your touch sensory will send a message to your brain. After receiving this message your brain will let you know it is vital to move your hand off the burner before receiving further injury. Vision is used on an everyday occasion especially when walking or driving. Our sight allows us to see our environment so we can stop at red lights, wait for cars to pass and know when it's safe to walk across a street.
Identify and describe at least three factors contributing to the accuracy of sensory data.
