    ...Did you create 8 different accounts to ask this question repeatedly? Why? O.o You need to know what each of these terms mean. Do you have any specific questions? Of course sensory information will be received through your eyes first (you should know the structure of the eyes, there's a specific order involved here) and that information will be transmitted to the brain - the thalamus, generally, is the part of the brain involved in sensory perception and controlling movement.

    The question asks about perception as well so in addition to the physical methods mentioned above you might like to talk about concepts like binocular/monocular cues and Gestalt laws if applicable.
