Sensory Systems

Numerous senses such as seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching hold the key to our interaction with the outside world. Researchers at UTHealth are studying the way sensory stimuli are converted into electrical impulses, along with genetic defects that hinder this process, leading to conditions such as blindness and deafness. Topics in this theme include Sensory Disorders, Somatosensation, Pain and Touch, Olfaction and Taste, Auditory and Vestibular Systems, Vision, Visual Sensory-motor Processing, and Multisensory Integration.
