  Sensation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In psychology, sensation is the first stage in the chain of biochemical and neurologic events that begins with the impinging of a stimulus upon the receptor cells of a sensory organ, which then leads to perception, the mental state that is reflected in statements like "I see a uniformly blue wall."
These include the taste buds, the sense of touch in the structures of the mouth and digestive system, chemical sensation of irritation in the trigeminal nerve system, and unique receptors for sensing the properties of water located at the rear of the oral cavity.
Smell, or olfaction, is received by the olfactory bulb and the connected to the brain by the olfactory nerve, the 1st cranial nerve of the brain, just after the nasal turbinates of the nose warms strain and filter the air.

 SENSATION - Definition
The sensation caused by the appearance of that work is still remembered by many.
``Sensation properly expresses that change in the state of the mind which is produced by an impression upon an organ of sense (of which change we can conceive the mind to be conscious, without any knowledge of external objects).
Perception, on the other hand, expresses the knowledge or the intimations we obtain by means of our sensations concerning the qualities of matter, and consequently involves, in every instance, the notion of externality, or outness, which it is necessary to exclude in order to seize the precise import of the word sensation.'' --Fleming.

 The Sensation Show: Artists and their Works
The Sensation shows in London and New York were sources of either intense controversy or blatant hype, depending on your point of view, but they certainly succeeded in sparking some of the most serious debates on the role of art in society in recent years.
In London, the lightning rod for controversy was a Marcus Harvey portrait of Myra Hindley, a notorious child murderer, done Chuck Close-style using hundreds of children's handprints.
Sensation was a huge success which brought in millions of dollars in revenue, and generated many more millions worth of free publicity for Saatchi and his group of artists, not to mention the many politicians and pundits who waded into the debate on "decency" vs. free speech.

 Adolescence: Friends, porn, and punk: sensation seeking in personal relationships, Internet activities, and music ...
Sensation seeking relates to both extraversion, specifically impulsivity and sociability, and psychoticism, as illustrated by hypomanic tendencies in high sensation seekers and phobic tendencies and schizophrenia in low sensation seekers (Zuckerman, 1994).
Low sensation seekers might be expected to disclose to fewer people in order to fulfill their need for intimacy, while high sensation seekers are expected to have more friends, especially casual friends (Franken, Gibson, and Mohan, 1990).
High sensation seekers were expected have a larger pool of casual and close friends in order to meet the need for arousal, stimulation, and novelty.

 Classics in the History of Psychology -- James (1890) Chapter 17
Thus the sensations to which our joints give rise when they rotate are signs of what, through a large number of other sensations, tactile and optical, we have come to know as the movement of the whole limb.
To say that we feel a sensation's seat to be 'in the brain' or 'against the eye' or 'under the skin' is to say as much about it and to deal with it in as non-primitive a way as to say that it is a mile off.
The immediate datum is here limited to the sensation of the retina which, it is true, admits of considerable diversity, but at bottom reverts to the impression of light and dark with their shades, and that of colors.

The therapeutic approach concerning "respiratory sensation" is now ready for prime time, since the great advances in the physiologic and psychological interpretations of respiratory sensation in the last decade enable us to use the many quantitative scales of breathlessness/dyspnea (eg, visual analog scale and Borg category scale) in practice.
The basic research concerning respiratory sensation is composed of true science, ie, psychophysics and/or neurophysiology, behavioral science, applied physioIogy, and clinical science.
The understanding of the assessment of respiratory sensation is important for the successful application of therapeutic modalities, including cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and exercise training for patients.

 Creativity and Sensation: the Case for Synaesthetic Media
In this paper I am making a simplistic distinction between 'sensation' and 'perception', to the effect that a sensation is what impinges on the sense organs, and a perception is what is experienced most directly as a result (see Figure 1).
There is a normal mapping between these two such that a sensation of sound waves impacting on the auditory apparatus is perceived as audible sound.
But in synaesthesia, a sensation that normally produces one kind of perception actually produces another kind, so that the sensation produced by sound waves might be perceived as varying colour or touch textures [14, 15].

Two names dominated gossip in fashionable society when the sensation was at its height: Ada, countess of Lovelace and Byron's only legitimate daughter; and Sir Richard Vyvyan, a leader of the opposition to the widening of the franchise in the 1832 Reform Bill.
Even casual observers could not ignore the way in which the public sensation was being hijacked to further the cause of unbelief.

 Sensation Fiction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Literary critics of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century have looked to the sensation novel, whose success was limited to the 1860s, as a precursor to modern-day genre fiction, especially to the detective novel.
Critical readings of both types tend to work from the assumption that the sensation novel enjoyed tremendous market success, but little or no "literary" acclaim during the height of its popularity.
A perusal of the literary and popular magazines of the day, however, shows that sensation writing was a highly contested site of literary value even during the 1860s and 1870s.

It is not a substance distinct from the body, as Plato taught but a co-substantial Principle with the body, both being united to form the composite substance, man. The faculties or powers of the soul are five-fold: nutritive, sensitive, appetitive, locomotive, and rational.
Sensation is defined as the faculty "by which we receive the forms of sensible things without the matter, as the wax receives the figure of the seal without the metal of which the seal is composed".
It is "a movement of the soul", the "form without the matter" being the stimulus which calls forth that movement.
