Mechanoreceptor
The sense of hearing can be classified as a
Photoreceptor
The sense of sight can be classified as a
Proprioceptors
The Golgi tendon receptors can be classified as
The skin
General sense organs can be found in the highest concentration in
Conjunctiva
is a mucous membrane covering part of the eye
Cornea
is the clear part of the sclera in the front of the eye
Pupil
is a hole that lets light into the eye
Retina
the innermost layer of the eye is
Rods
are used to see in dim light
Cones
are part of the retinal layer and respond to the colors red, green, and blue
Auricle(pinna)
The external ear is called the
Eardrum
also called the tympanic membrane and is at the end of the auditory tube.
Malleus, incus, stapes
The sequence of the ossicles from the eardrum to the inner ear is
Middle ear
the stapes rest against the oval window in the
Oval window
The structure that separates the middle ear from the inner ear is
Mechanoreceptor
the sense of balance is classified as a
Semicircular canals and vestibule
The sense of balance occurs in the
Chemoreceptor
The sense of taste is classified as a
Gustatory cells
the cells responsible for the sense of taste are the
sweet, salty, bitter, sour
the four taste sensations are
Chemoreceptor
the sense of smell is classified as a
Olfactory receptors
also assist in the sense of taste
Thalamus
the sense of smell is able to stimulate vivid memories because the olfactory tract passes through the
Touch
which of the following sensations is generated by a general sense organ
Taste
Which of the following sensations is generated by a special sense
both respond to four primary stimuli
which of the following is not true about the senses of taste and smell
Equilibrium
which sensation is not sensed by a general sense organ
smell, equilibrium, taste
which sensation is not sensed by a special sense organ
they're grouped in a localized location
Which of the following is not true of a general sense organ
Cornea
sometimes called the window of the eye
Iris
colored part of the eye
Pupil
hole in the eye that lets light in
Choroid
layer of the eye that keeps light from scattering in the eye
Cones
structures in the retina that are able to respond to color
Sclera
white of the eye
Conjunctiva
mucous membrane covering part of the sclera
Lens
structure that is changed in shape by ciliary muscles to facilitate focus of light
Retina
innermost layer of the eye
Rods
structures in the retina that respond to dim light
Free nerve ending
general sense organ that responds to pain and temperature
General sense organ
microscopic sense organ distributed all over the body
Gustatory cells
chemoreceptor responsible for the sense of taste
Photoreceptor
receptor that responds to light
Proprioceptor
receptor that provides info on position or movement of body parts
Papillae
taste buds are located here
Pacinian corpuscle
example of a mechanoreceptor
Olfactory receptors
chemoreceptor for the sense of smell
Golgi tendon receptor
example of a proprioceptor
Special sense organ
Sense organ that has receptors grouped in a localized area or in complex organs
Mechanoreceptor
general sense organ that is activated by stimuli that deform or change the shape of the receptor
