Z332 – Week 6 Study Questions I write these questions for you to answer as a means to redirect you to the important topics and concepts presented in my online lectures. The study questions are intended to make you think about the course material and understand all aspects of the material presented in lecture. I believe that these questions are a good learning tool and well worth your time.

To get the most from these questions: 1. Write out the answers in your own words (do not copy answers from another source). 2. Supplement your answers with drawings. 3. Answer the questions on each topic in the online lectures before you move on to the next topic. Week 6: Chapter 16: Sensory, Motor and Integrative Systems 1. What are sensory receptors? a.
