General Senses receptors that are widely distributed throughout the body skin, various organs and jointsSpecial Senses specialized receptors confined to structures in the head eyes and ears3 4. Chemoreceptors respond to changes in chemical concentrationsPain receptors (Nociceptors) respond to tissue damageThermoreceptors respond to changes in temperatureMechanoreceptors respond to mechanical forces Photoreceptors respond to light 4 5. stimulation of receptor causes local change in its receptor potential a graded electrical current is generated that reflects intensity of stimulation if receptor is part of a neuron, the membrane potential may generate anaction potential if receptor is not part of a neuron, the receptor potential must betransferred to a neuron to trigger an action potential peripheral nerves transmit impulses to CNS where they are analyzed andinterpreted in the brain5 6. Projection process in which the brain projects the sensationback to the apparent sourceit allows a person to pinpoint the region ofstimulation 6 7. ability to ignore unimportant stimuli (clothes) involves a decreased response to a particular stimulusfrom the receptors (peripheral adaptations) or alongthe CNS pathways leading to the cerebral cortex(central adaptation) sensory impulses become less frequent and may cease stronger stimulus is required to trigger impulses 7 8. Free nerve endings Meissners corpuscles common in epithelial abundant in hairless portionstissuesof skin; lips simplest receptors detect fine touch; distinguish sense itchingbetween two points on the skin Pacinian corpuscles common in deeper subcutaneoustissues, tendons, and ligaments detect heavy pressure andvibrations8 9. Touch and Pressure Receptors 9 10. Warm receptors sensitive to temperatures above 25oC (77o F) unresponsive to temperature above 45oC (113oF)Cold receptors sensitive to temperature between 10oC (50oF) and 20oC (68oF) Pain receptors respond to temperatures below 10oC respond to temperatures above 45oC 10 11. free nerve endings widely distributed nervous tissue of brain lacks pain receptors stimulated by tissue damage, chemical, mechanical forces,or extremes in temperature adapt very little, if at all 11 12. pain receptors are the only receptors in viscera whose stimulation produces sensations pain receptors respond differently to stimulation not well localized may feel as if coming from some other part of the body known as referred pain 12 13. may occur due to sensory impulses from two regionsfollowing a common nerve pathway to brain 13 14. Acute pain fibers Chronic pain fibers A-delta fibers C fibers thin, myelinated thin, unmyelinated conduct impulses conduct impulses more rapidly slowly associated with associated with dull, sharp painaching pain well localized difficult to pinpoint14 15. Thalamus allows person to be aware of pain Pain Inhibiting Substances enkephalinsCerebral Cortex serotonin judges intensity of pain endorphins locates source of pain produces emotional and motor responses to pain15 16. sensory receptors are within large, complex sensoryorgans in the head smell in olfactory organs taste in taste buds hearing and equilibrium in ears sight in eyes16 17. Olfactory Receptors chemoreceptors respond to chemicals dissolved in liquidsOlfactory Organs contain olfactory receptors and supporting epithelial cells cover parts of nasal cavity, superior nasal conchae, and a portion of the nasal septum 17 18. 18 19. Once olfactory receptors are stimulated, nerve impulsestravel through olfactory nervesolfactory bulbsolfactory tracts limbic system (for emotions) and olfactory cortex (for interpretation)19 20. olfactory organs located high in the nasal cavityabove the usual pathway of inhaled air olfactory receptors undergo sensory adaptationrapidly sense of smell drops by 50% within a second afterstimulation20 21. Taste Buds organs of taste located on papillae of tongue, roof of mouth, linings ofcheeks and walls of pharynxEach has from 50-150 taste cells.Taste Receptors chemoreceptors taste cells modified epithelial cells that function as receptors taste hairs microvilli that protrude from taste cells; sensitive parts of taste cells 21 22. 22 23. Five Primary Taste Sensations sweet stimulated by carbohydrates sour stimulated by acids salty stimulated by salts bitter stimulated by many organic compounds umami- stimulated by certain amino acidsSpicy foods activate pain receptors 23 24. Sensory impulses from taste receptors travel along cranial nerves to medulla oblongata to thalamus to gustatory cortex (for interpretation) 24 25. 25 26. 26 27. 27 28. Ear organ of hearing Three Sections External Middle Inner 28 29. auricle collects sounds waves external auditory meatus lined with ceruminous glands carries sound to tympanic membrane terminates with tympanic membrane tympanic membrane vibrates in response to sound waves 29 30. tympanic cavity air-filled space in temporalbone auditory ossicles vibrate in response to tympanic membrane malleus, incus, and stapes oval window opening in wall of tympanic cavity stapes vibrates against it to move fluids in inner ear 30 31. eustachian tube connects middle ear tothroat helps maintain equalpressure on both sidesof tympanic membrane usually closed byvalve-like flaps inthroat 31 32. complex system of labyrinths osseous labyrinth bony canal in temporalbone filled with perilymph membranous labyrinth tube within osseouslabyrinth filled with endolymph 32 33.

The eye, the organ that contains the visualreceptors, provides vision with the assistance of :Visual Accessory Organs eyelids lacrimal apparatus extrinsic eye muscles46 47.
