Sensory, Motor and Integrative Systems Learning Outcomes: 1.
16. Sensations arise as a result stimulation, transduction, generation, and
Sensory receptors can be classified structurally, functionally, or by the type of
Somatic sensations include tactile sensations, thermal sensations, pain, and
The somatosensory and primary motor areas of the cerebral cortex unequally
serve different body regions.
Somatic sensory pathways relay information from sensory receptors to the
cerebral cortex and cerebellum.
Somatic motor pathways carry impulses from the brain to effectors.
Wakefulness and memory are integrative functions of the brain.
Impulses for smell propagate along the olfactory nerve to the brain.
Impulses for taste propagate along the facial, glossopharyngeal, and vagus
nerves to the brain.
The eye is protected by eyelids, eyelashes, eyebrows, and a lacrimal apparatus.
The eye is constructed of three layers and two chambers.
Image formation involves refraction of light rays, change in lens shape, and
constriction of the pupil.
The neural pathway of light is photoreceptors, bipolar cells, ganglion cells,
optic nerve, primary visual cortex.
The three main regions of the ear are the external, middle, and internal ear.
The pathway of sound is tympanic membrane, ossicles, oval window, cochlea,
vestibulocochlear nerve, primary auditory cortex.
Impulses for equilibrium propagate along the vestibulocochlear nerve to the
brain Chapter 15

Four events typically involved when a sensation happens:

Three Structural Classes of Sensory Receptors: Classes based on location: Type of Stimulus: Mechanoreceptors – Thermoreceptors – Nociceptors – Photoreceptors – Chemoreceptors – Osmoreceptors – Sensory Receptors: Adaptation Somatic Sensations Tactile Sensations Thermal Sensations: Pain: Types of Pain:
Fast pain: Slow pain: Localization of Pain: Proprioception: Proprioceptors: Somatic Sensory “Map” in the Cerebral Cortex: Somatic Motor “Map” in the Cerebral Cortex Somatic Sensory Pathways: Sensory Pathways: The Posterior Column Pathway Sensory Pathways: The Anterolateral Pathway Sensory Pathways to the Cerebellum Somatic Motor Pathways Upper Motor Neuron Pathways Modulation of Movement by the Basal Nuclei: Modulation of Movement by the Cerebellum: Integrative Functions: Wakefulness and Sleep Integrative Functions: Learning and Memory Integrative Functions: Memory Occurs in Stages Chapter 16
