In Your Own Words
When physical energy gets transformed into nerve signals
The transfer of energy from outside the body to the brain.
Sensation is transducted as a perception for the brain to understand.
Transduction involves a physical outside force which takes the form as neural messages.
The process of "translating" the sensation received into neural messages that the brain can comprehend. Transduction = translation.
The process of information getting transduced into nerve cells.
Transduction occurs with all five senses, Taste, Smell, Hearing, [[#|Sight]], and Touch.
In the ear it occurs in the cochlea, in the nose it occurs in the taste buds, and in hearing it occurs in the inner ear.
Transducting = Transforming
The conversion of physical energy into neural messages.
includes the five sense in which processes information
Taste of foods gets transduced into a neural message: i.e. when your tongue licks an ice cream cone the taste of the ice cream is tranducted into a neural message.
Looking out the window; light gets transformed in your eyeball into a neural message.
When you look into the sky and see a rainbow, these light waves become neural messages making you see all the different [[#|colors]] within a rainbow.
The heat energy from a hot stove is tranduced onto your finger tips, and it goes into your brain as "hot"
If you prick your finger on something sharp, pain sensations are sent through neural messages and into the brain, telling it that the object can hurt.
When you put an ice cube in your mouth, a neural message gets sent to your brain as cold.
When the cold air touches your skin as you walk outside, your body turns this into a neural message to let your brain know that its cold outside.
