There are five types of sensory receptors-chemoreceptors, pain receptors, thermoreceptors, me change receptors, and photo receptors. What is each of these receptors sensitive to?-Mechanoreceptors Movement
There are five types of sensory receptors-chemoreceptors, pain receptors, thermoreceptors, me change receptors, and photo receptors. What is each of these receptors sensitive to?-Photoreceptors Light
The Ability of the nervous system to become less responsive to a maintained stimulus Sensory adaptation
In touch and pressure, what are the three types of nerve ending and their functions?-Free nerve endings Give sensation of itching or pain
In touch and pressure, what are the three types of nerve ending and their functions?-Tactile corpuscles Interpret light touch
In touch and pressure, what are the three types of nerve ending and their functions?-Lamellated corpuscles Give sensation to deep pressure
With temperature sensation, what are the sensations felt at different temperatures-warm receptors Sensitive to 77°F or above, sensation of burning occurs at 113°F
With temperature sensation, what are the sensations felt at different temperatures-cold receptors Sensitive to 50°F-68°F, sensation of freezing occurs at 50°F or below
What is the purpose for pain To protect the body
What is referred pain It feels as if the pain is coming from a body part other than the one being stimulated
What has to happen to the odorant molecules that enter the nose in for the olfactory organs to smell They dissolve in fluid and bind to the receptors
*Explain how taste buds taste. Describe parts of the taste bud and what needs to bind to the taste receptors Taste buds are taste organs that Have 50-100 gaste cells with an opening called a taste pote and have tiny taste that stick out of the pores
What is the path that the sound waves must travel through the ear in order for us to hear-Step 1 Sound waves enter External acoustic meatus
What is the path that the sound waves must travel through the ear in order for us to hear-Step 2 Sound waves cause the eardrum to reproduce vibrations coming from sound source
What is the path that the sound waves must travel through the ear in order for us to hear-Step 3 Malleus vibrates causing the incus to vibrate, causing tjw stapes to vibrate
What is the path that the sound waves must travel through the ear in order for us to hear-Step 4 When stapes vibrate against the oval window where they transfer them vibration to perilymph cells
What is the path that the sound waves must travel through the ear in order for us to hear-Step 5 This movement travels to the endolymph and mover the hair cells
What is the path that the sound waves must travel through the ear in order for us to hear-Step 6 The hair cells stimulate an impulse that travels to the auditory complex of the temporal lobe.
What is the static equilibrium, what are the organs and how do they work It senses the position of the head, the macula organiza has hair cells that are stimulated when the head moves
What is the dynamic equilibrium, what are the organs and how do they work It detects motion and Aida in maintaining balance, the crista ampularis has sensory receptors that are located in gel-like fluid that when it moves it bends the receptors and stimulate the neurons
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:eyelid Has four layers and protects the eye.
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye-Lacrimal apparatus Is made of glands and ducts that carry tears to the nasal cavity
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:extrinsic muscles Has six muscles that move the eyes in various directions
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:cornea Is transparent and acts as the window of the eye
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:schlera Is made up of collagenous and elastic fibers and protects the eye.
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:choroid coat Is the back layer of the eye and contains melanocytes that cause the inside of the eye to be dark to absorb excess light
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:lens Lies behind the iris and pupil, has fibers that are transparent and let light through
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:iris Gives the eye color
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:retina Contains photoreceptors
Describe and give the function of the followinbg parts of the eye:pupil A circular opening in the center of the iris
What is accommadation Is when the ciliary muscles and suspensory ligaments help the lens to adjust its shape to focus on objects in the distance and up close
How are photopigments involved in creating nerve impulses for the sense of light A light sensitive pigment in rods decomposed in the presence of light triggering a series of reactions that initiate thw nerve impulses
