Section 1

Question Answer
What is on a sensory receptor to receive the stimulusReceptors
The two types of SensesGeneral Senses and Special Senses
Sensory neuron receptors that are widely distributed throughout the body (skin, organ, jointsGeneral Senses
Sensory neuron receptors that are confined to structures in the Head (eyes, ears)Specialized Senses
Stimualation of a Receptor results inAction Potential (impulse)
Impulses are carried from ______by Afferent neurons toward the CNSPNS
Sensory Impulses are carried from PNS and interpreted byBrain
Which happens first in an Action Potential: Afferent neurons are carried from the PNS, Impulses are interpreted , or stimulation of receptorsStimulation, Afferent towards CNS, lastly interpretation of impulses
Occurs when the brain becomes AWARE of a sensory impulseSensation
Occurs when the brain then interprets a sensory impulsePerception

Section 2

Question Answer
There is something on my leg Sensation
There is something on my leg and it is movingPerception
What determines what the sensation isCerebral Cortex
An adaptive response receptor that adapts quickly to *touch, temp receptors*Phasic Adaptor
An adaptive response receptor that adapts slowly or not at all to pain receptorsTonic Adaptor
When sesory impulses are interpreted within the brain, it is termedPerception
Smell is detected byChemoreceptors
Detects and responds to pain by tissue damage of electrical, thermal, or chemicalNocirceptors
A receptor that respond to light energyPhotoreceptors
Receptors that detect and respond to changes in temperatureThermoreceptors
Receptors that detect and respond to changes in movement; and the typesMechanoreceptors: Proproreceptors, Baroreceptors, and Stretch
Receptosrs that detect and respond to changes in positionProprioreceptors
Pressure is detected byBaroreceptors
stretch is detected byStretch

Section 3

Question Answer
Name the two types of General SensesExteroreceptive (in skin) and Visceroreceptive (in organs) senses
Senses detect extreme cold/or excessive pressureExteroreceptive senses
Pain that results in senses of tissue damage due to VARIOUS causesExteroreceptive senses
Reciprocal innervation of bicep/tricep muscle is stretched and provide information about condition and positionProprioception
Senses that detect fullness of eating and bladderVisceroreceptive sense of Stretch
Senses that detect food in stomach that stimulates acid productionVisceroreceptive sense of Chemical
General sense for change in blood pressure in vesselsVisceroreceptive sense of Pressure
Senses that detect tissue damage in heart (heart attack)Viscerorecepive sense of Pain
Senses that detect extended stretching bowel and abdominal crampsVisceroreceptive sense of Pain
