Homework Package 6, Chapters 11, 12, & 13Chapter 11 SensesClassifications of Senses1.List the two classifications of senses:General senses and special sensesGeneral Senses1.Describe general senses:Senses detected by rather simple, microscopic receptors that arewidely distributed throughout the body in the skin, muscles, tendons, joints, and otherinternal organs of the body2.General senses are responsible for such sensations as:Pain, temperature, touch, pressure, andbody positionSpecial Senses1.Individual receptor cells are identified structurally according to whether they are:Encapsulated or unencapsulated, whether they are covered by some sort of capsule or are“free” or “naked”2.Sensory receptor cells are also classified functionally by the typeor modes of stimuli thatactivate them, list the different classifications:Photoreceptors, chemoreceptors, painreceptors, thermoreceptors, mechanoreceptors3.Photoreceptors are sensitive to:Change in intensity or color of light, as in vision4.Chemoreceptors are sensitive to:Presence of certain chemicals, as in taste or smell5.Pain receptors are sensitive to:Physical injury6.Thermoreceptors are sensitive to:Changes in temperature7.Mechanoreceptors are sensitive to:Mechanical stimuli that change their position or shape8.List the specific receptor, type of receptor and sense for the following sense organs:Sense OrganSpecific ReceptorType of ReceptorSenseRods and conesPhotoreceptorVisionK Rowe LVNPage1of78Rev: May 2020
