Stack #72576


Deep sensory receptors (2): Muscle and joint receptors
Name muscle receptors: 4 muscle spindles, Golgi Tendon organs, free nerve endings, and Pacinian corpuscles
Name joint receptors: Golgi-type endings, free nerve endings, Ruffini endings, and Paciniform endings
name thermoreceptors (2): Cold and warmth receptors
What are the nocioceptors: respond to noxious stimuli, perception of pain
Chemoreceptors (5): taste, smell, Arterial oxygen, osolality, Blood CO2, and Blood glucose
What is the role of muscle spindles: monitor chnges in lenght of the muscles and velocity of these changes, important role in position and movement sense in motor learning
What is the role of Golgi Tendon organs: monitor tension within mm, prevent structural demage to the mm by inhibition of the contracting mm and fasilitation of the antagonist
what is the location of Golgi tendon organs in both proximal and distal tendinouse insertions of the muscle
What is the role of free nerve endings in mm? respond to pain and pressure
where are the of free nerve endings in mm localized? in fascia of the muscle
what is the role of Pacinian Corpuscles? respond to vibration and deep pressure
where are the Pacinini Corpuscles localized? in mm fascia
Where are the Golgi-type endings localized? in the ligaments
what is the role of the Golgi-type endings? detect the rate of joint movement
where are the free nerve endings localized in joints? capsue and ligaments
what is the role of free nerve endings in joints? respond to pain and crude awareness of join motion
Where are the Ruffini endings localized? joint capsule and ligaments
what is the role of Ruffini endings? responsible for direction and velocity of joint movement
Where are the Paciniform endings? n the joint capsule
what is the role of the Paciniform endings monitor rapid joint movement
Where are the Blood CO2 receptors? modula, aortic and carotic bodies
Where are the Arterial oxygen receptors? aortic and carotic bodies
