Strucuralists believe in conscious experience, which they split into basic components: sensations, imaged and emotions. Edward Titchener was the founder of this school. His findings: 43.000 elements of sensory experiences, more than 30.000 being visual and 11.000 auditory. He just found 4 elements involved in taste and three in the sensation of the alimentary tract.
