Abstract: The problem of defining and explaining perception has challenged psychologists ever since psychology first became a science. It is understood that the stimulation of a sensory end-organ results in the conduction of electrical impulses from the end-organ through nerve fibers to the cerebral cortex. Normally, different kinds of stimuli activate different sensory end-organs, the impulses from which arrive at different places on the cortex; that is, sound will activate one organ and light will activate another, and the wave-length of light which corresponds to the sensation of red activates organs different from those activated by the wave-length corresponding to blue.
