Behavior Manifestations Indicative of Hedonics and Intensity in Chemosensory Experience
Adequate stimulation of a sensory system initiates a cascade of neural events. This results in the arousal of a “sensation”, or “feeling”. Stimulating events and their neural sequels occur in the public domain, and therefore are subject to direct measurement. Sensations in contrast, are psychological events, occurring in the private domain, and are therefore not subject to direct measurement.
