Perception is the third of the five aggregates.  With perception, we gain a better apprehension of stimuli.   We identify and recognize them.   In doing so, we activate five networks: network of verbal conceptions, network of non-verbal conceptions, network of ideations, network of impressions and network of associations.

Refer to the text “The Five Aggregates and the Sutta on the No-Self” for more details.
