Integrative Physiology Zoo 4125/5125 Fall 2010 Sensory Physiology Principles Objectives List Be able to describe the generation and propagation of Action Potentials, and chemical transmission at a synapse. (see 3115 notes and/or Review lecture) From the Review Lecture on Electrical Signaling: a. Describe presynaptic modulation (inhibition and facilitation) and understand how this would affect target organs. b. Describe postsynaptic modulation (inhibition and facilitation) and understand how this would affect target organs. Sensory Principles 1. Define Sensory Receptor. Name the stimuli that are detected by visceral (interoceptor) and somatic senses. 2. Define modality, the law of specific nerve energies and adequate stimulus. Under what circumstances will a receptor respond to an “inadequate stimulus”? 3. List the major groups of receptors and their adequate stimuli. 4. List the 3 structural types of sensory receptors. b. Define neural and non-neural receptors.
