Flashcards in Exam III-SomatoSensory Receptors Deck (21):
What are the receptors for Smell, Taste, and pH?
What are the receptors for Light?
What are the receptors for Temperature?
What are the receptors for Pain?
What are the receptors for touch, muscle length/force, auditory, and vestibular
What is the translation of energy from external stimuli to an electrochemical signal?
What are the two structural types of receptors?
Encapsulated- surrounded by multiple layers of epithelial tissue and Non encapsulated
What are the two categories of adaptation?
Slow and fast
What are the TWO cell types that are NOT alpha-Beta innervated? What are their innervations?
Free Nerve Endings (alpha-Delta & C Fibers) and Hair Receptors (alpha-Delta)
What is the only receptor found on just hairy skin?
What is the only receptor found on just glabrous skin?
What are the only two purely slow receptors?
Merkel's & Ruffini
What is the only rapid AND slow receptor?
Free Nerve ending
What are the three encapsulated receptor endings?
Meissener's, Pacininan, and Ruffini
What is the process that helps localize a touch stimulus?
What type of receptor has Free nerve endings, Riffini's, Paciniform corpuscles, and ligament receptors?
