I am not sure what you mean by sensation. But as for perception there are several good titles. 

The first is very in-depth but is focused on Information Visualization : "Information Visualization : Perception for Design" by Colin Ware.

The second also by Ware is "Visual Thinking for Design" it is a great book but not as in-depth as the first. 

Jeff Johnson has a title called "Design with the Mind in Mind" that is more general.  It is a good book but not as sound as Ware's titles ( Johnson is a designer and Ware is both a designer and Cognitive scientist.)

Any of these give very information about perception and cognition geared toward design.

+1 for Jeff Johnson's "Designing with the Mind in Mind". Haven't read any of Ware's books. Maybe its time. =)

I would recommend a classic human factors text.  There are sections on touch, hearing, sight, smell and much data on perception as a function of sense inputs and topics that affect design like the use of multiple attributes for reducing search time and the impact of contrast on recognition and....  I'll recommend some later.  Colin Ware's books are excellent and extremely detailed.

We used this in our grad level S&P class.  I think they used some of it for the undergrad classes too:

I used this text and an earlier version of it with great success. It covers a lot of the cognitive, memory, learning, and S&P aspects of human factors:

I think the book Visual Intelligence by mark wilson (I think) is excellent. It covers the rules the brain uses to construct the person's perception of the world. I used it as a reference when I taught UI Design at Seattle University.

Good hunting
