Lecture Note

General overview of lecture:The special senses consist of the senses of sight, hearing, taste and
smell. The sense organs are located in the head and have connections with the brain. These
senses allow the individual to detect and analyze light, sound and chemical signals in the
environment. Since the vestibular apparatus is part of the ear in which the hearing apparatus is
located, vestibular functions will also be covered in this section even though they are not strictly
special senses.
