NIH Toolbox for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function: Sensation


Sensation refers to the biochemical and neurologic process of detecting incoming nerve impulses as nervous system activity. Sensory processes are vital to one’s level of independence in relationships with others, academic and occupational endeavors, and activities of daily living. Objective tests of sensation can systematically examine and determine if participants have intact sensory functioning. There is also fundamental overlap of certain sensory processes with cognitive and motor functioning. (author abstract)
