Sense data from your eyes, ears, and other sense organs
A note for Lesson no. 7, "Our Brains Can Create Reality," in Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context from page 115 is:
...compression begins with small neurons that carry sense data from your eyes, ears, and other sense organs.
Most of your sensory systems work in a similar way, except for the system that gives you your sense of smell, known as the olfactory system.
