Autonomicinvoluntary Parts of autonomic nervous system: Sympathetic and Parasympathetic
3 ways to classify receptors1. type of stimulus 2. body location 3. structural complexity
Mechanoreceptorsrespond to touch, pressure, vibration, and stretch
Thermoreceptorssensitive to changes in temperature
Photoreceptorsrespond to light energy ex: retina
Chemoreceptorsrespond to chemicals (ex: smell, taste, changes in blood chemistry)
Nociceptorssensitive to pain- causing stimuli (ex: extreme heat or cold, excessive pressure) -do not adapt
Exteroceptors-respond to stimuli arising outside body -receptors in skin for touch, pressure, pain, and temperature
Interoceptors (visceroceptors)-respond to stimuli arising in internal viscera and blood vessels -sensitive to chemical changes, tissue stretch, and temperature changes -sometimes cause discomfort -inside
Proprioceptors-respond to stretch in skeletal muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, and connective tissue -inform brain of one's movement -you know where arm is located when held above you
Levels of neural integration in sensory systems1. receptor level: sensory receptors 2. circuit level: processing in ascending pathways 3. Perceptual level: processing in cortical sensory areas
Cranial nervesnext cards
Olfactory nerve-sensory nerves of smell -pic of nose
Optic nerves-In the eyes -optic chiasma (cross over)
Oculomotor nerves-controls eyes (raising eyelid, directing eyeball) -Same pic as trochlear nerves and abducens nerves
Trochlear nerves-motor nerve that directs eyeball -superior oblique muscle -can't move eye inferior laterally
Trigeminal Nerves-3 divisions down the face -largest cranial nerves, extend from pons to face
Abducens nerves-control one eye muscle -lateral rectus muscle
Facial Nerves-Chief motor nerves of face with 5 major branches -facial expression, parasympathetic impulses to lacrimal and salivary glands. Can't produce tears/ saliva
Vestibulocochlear Nerves vestibulo-->balance cochlear--> hearing-hearing -pic of ear
Glossopharyngeal nerves-tongue and pharynx -motor functions: innervate part of tongue and pharynx for swallowing and provide parasympathetic fibers to parotid salivary glands -pic is all of throat and goes further down into throat
Vagus Nerves-only cranial nerves that extend beyond head and neck region -biggest nerve
Accessory Nerve-spinal nerve, helps it and is an accessory -formerly spinal accessory nerve -pic of spine
Hypoglossal nerves-bottom of the tongue -innervate extrinsic and intrinsic muscles of tongue that contribute to swallowing and speech -pic is does not go all the way down in throat like glossopharyngeal nerves
