Name the nerve ending that is found in tendons and joints to detect load or tension.

Golgi tendon organs and is group Ib nerve endings

3

Name the nerve ending that are found deep subcutaneous tissue and joints and detects vibrations

Pacinian corpuscles which are group II nerve endings

4

Name the nerve endings that are found in the epidermis and detect crude touch and pressure.

Merkel cells which are group III nerve endings

5

Name the nerve endings that are found in the epidermis, dermis, joints and detect pain and temperature.

Naked nerve endings and are group IV

6

Name the nerve that is in the dermal papillae and detect two-point discrimination(fine touch).

8

Which neurotransmitters are inhibitory within the CNS?

Glycine (spinal cord) and GABA (brain)

9

Which type of cholinergic receptors are found at the neuromuscular junction and most of all cholinergic receptors?

Nicotinic

10

Which type of cholinergic receptors are found at the parasympathetic postganglionic endings?

Muscarinic

11

Which type of receptor is found in smooth muscle in blood vessels, gut, sphincter and skin. It constricts.

alpha-1 adrenergic receptor

beta-2 adrenergic receptor

15

Which receptor is found in brown fat and increases lipolysis?

beta-3 adrenergic receptors

16

Which type of nociceptor is fast conducting, mostly A fibers, produce well localized, sharp, pricking pain?

Specific: Mechanical, cold thermal, heat thermal

17

Which nociceptor is present in healthy tissue and is not activated by noxious stimuli? It will only begin firing when tissue becomes increasingly inflamed.

Silent nociceptor

18

Which nociceptor is mostly group IV and C type fibers, found in somatic and visceral tissue, may be activated by chemical, thermal or mechanical stimuli?

Polymodal nociceptors

19

Which nociceptor have receptors for bradykinin, prostaglandin E2, serotonin, histamine, interleukin and TNF?

Polymodal nociceptors

20

Which nociceptor is slow conducting and causes poorly localized burning and dull aching pain?

Polymodal nociceptors
