They are classified as senses which are processed by the brain. The specifics and details of those experiences, and how you process them, develop what is referred to as your “perception”, or how your brain understands or recognizes /the stimuli that cause them/ or /the experience that is caused by those stimuli/. Each sense (sight, smell, touch, hearing, taste) is delegated to its own category under the Five basic human senses. Studies have been done by various organizations (from colleges to the CIA) about the possibility of a sixth sense, though the specification has been open to various designations of what this ‘sixth sense’ could be (telepathy, telekinesis, psychic insight). Basically generalizing any sense not covered by the 5 basic senses.
