a. Although sensation and perception are closely related, it is very important to understand the difference between the two. Sensation is the process of sensing our environment using our different sensory systems. There are four different systems: visual, auditory, cutaneous, and chemical.

Perception is the way that we interpret that information from our senses in order for it to mean anything. Simply put, perceiving is believing. Perception differs from person to person. Using color as an example, the color “green” to one person may be different to another person.

Page 3 In conclusion during the course of my Psychology class I have learned a lot of concepts that can relate to everyday life. Before I formally learned about these 3 concepts I thought that my prior knowledge of these 3 things were everything that could be known about them. When looking intensively deeper into what they actually are I learned a lot more information. From my learning experience I have found that every single concept we have learned in Psychology relates back to everyday life, so having more knowledge on these things give me a larger outlook on the events I see occur and

While I believe it is not that farfetched to assume there is a relationship between family structure and the youths from those households committing crime, I also believe there are other factors involved that the media should have
