Biol 104, Dr. Espinoza, S10 Study Sheet for Chapter 38 Sensory Reception Biology 104 Modified with permission from Dr. Denny Smith Some of this information will be found in your readings, some in your lecture notes. 1. Define a stimulus, and give examples of stimuli that you experience on a regular basis. 2. What major change occurs when a sensory receptor is triggered regardless of the type of receptor it is? How is this related to the generation of a nerve impulse? 3. List three types of receptors and give the type of stimulus each is capable of detecting. 4. Of our five senses, which two are classified as chemical senses, and what type of receptors do these two senses use? 5. What must happen to the odor or taste molecules before chemoreceptors can detect them? 6. What are the five possible tastes we can experience? What structures, both general and specific, allow these tastes to be detected? Where are they located? What part of it is sensitive? 7. What is sensory adaptation?
