What is sensation?
What is perception?
How do these two abilities work together?
Pick one sensation and follow it (in writing) from the beginning of the “Sense” all the way to the perceiving of that sense in the brain.  I.E. Hearing would start at the pinna and end at the auditory cortex of the brain.  So you would describe each structure of the auditory system, what it is the name and what it does then and how it is made sense of in the brain, also which area of the brain it is processes in and what happens there.
