  1. optic pathway
    retina ->optic nerve -> optic chiasm -> lateral geniculate nucleus and superior colliculus -> optic radiations -> visual cortex
  2. auditory pathway
    cochlea -> auditory nucleus -> superior olivary nucleus-> inferior colliculus-> medial geniculate nucleus -> auditory cortex
  3. gustation pathway
    taste buds -> cranial nerves ( VII, IX, and X) -> solitary tract nucleus -> thalamus -> primary gustatory cortex -> limbic system -> higher brain centers
  4. olfactory pathway
    oderant receptors -> olfactory epithelia -> glomeri -> primary olfactory cortex -> limbic system
  5. touch pathway
    dorsal horn -> spinal cord -> brainstem-> thalamus -> primary somatosensory cortex
