5 Matching questions

  1. sensory receptor
  2. tactile corpuscle
  3. photoreceptor
  4. fast (A) pain
  5. thermoreceptor
  1. a incapsulated nerve ending; immediate touch and low frequency vibrations, located in hairless areas
  2. b found only in the eye; respond to light stimuli if intensity is great enough to generate receptor potential
  3. c allow the body to respond to stimulus
  4. d activates relative changes in temperature
  5. e division of the free nerve ending, feel sharp, intense, and localized pain

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. type 1A and type 2B; send messages concerning change in muscle length
  2. (ruffini corpuscle) located deep in the dermis, immediate and persistent touch, secondary temp. receptors
  3. smell, taste, vision, hearing, equilibrium
  4. located on basal membrane; between the dermis and epidermis, free nerve endings, feel light touch, itchy
  5. keep muscles from excessive contraction

5 True/False questions

  1. receptor potentialpotential that develops when an adequate stimulus acts on a receptor


  2. nociceptoractivated by intense stimuli that may damage tissue; sensation of pain


  3. interoceptornear or on the body surface


  4. bulboid corpuscle(crousy end bulb) involved with touch and low frequency vibrations


  5. adaptationwhen the receptor potential decreases and the intensity of the sensation decreases
