Perception is the process or the capability to attain awareness and understand the environment surrounding us by interpreting, selecting and organizing different type of information. All perceptions involve stimuli in the central nervous system. These stimuli result from the stimulation of our sense organs such as auditory stimuli when one hears a sound or a taste when someone eats something.
Perception is not only passive and can be shaped by our learning, experiences and education. By training your brain and your cognitive abilities, you can improve the different skills that you use to perceive the world around you, be more aware and improve your learning capacity.
