How is the outside world (light, sounds, odors) detected and understood by our nervous system? 

The outside world (lights, sounds, odors) is detected and understood by our nervous system through the process of sensory perception.

This involves specialized cells known as sensory receptors that detect different types of stimuli. As well as information from the environment.

For example, the eyes detect light and images, the ears detect sound waves, and the nose detects different molecules in the air that make up odors.

These sensory receptors then convert this information into electrical signals that are sent to the brain through neurons. The brain then processes this information and creates a perception of what is being sensed.

For instance, the brain interprets the combination of light, color, and shape detected by the eyes to create an image of the object being viewed.

Similarly, the brain interprets the combination of sound frequency and intensity detected by the ears to create a perception of sound.

Overall, the process of sensory perception allows us to understand and interact with the world around us.
