Sensory perception includes the reactions and physical events that are required to receive a stimulus, convert the stimulus to a molecular signal, and sense the signal. This module includes pathways describing the sensory perception of light (visual transduction, reviewed in Grossniklaus et al. 2015, Molday and Moritz 2015, Lankford et al. 2020), volatile chemicals (olfaction, reviewed in Glezer and Malnic 2019, Lankford et al. 2020), tastants (chemicals that activate taste receptors, reviewed in Roper and Chaudhari et al. 2017), and sound (reviewed in Fettiplace 2017).
