Chapter objectives: Distinguish between general and specific senses Classify receptors according to stimulus detected, body location, and histological structure Describe the structures of the ear and eye Explain the pathways of sound in the ear and light in the eye Identify, describe, and discuss the receptors and neural pathways involved in each of the five special senses Docsity.com 3. 4. 5. Classification of Sensory System by structural Complexity 4 general senses  Nociceptors  Thermoceptors  Mechanoceptors  Chemoreceptors 5 special senses – – – – – Olfaction Gustation Hearing Equilibrium Vision Docsity.com simplest receptor type: free nerve endings Sensory Receptors = specialized cells or cell processes monitoring conditions in/outside body (→ extero- and interoceptors) Receptors are specific for a certain type of stimulus → “receptor specificity” All sensory receptors are transducers, changing inc..
