1. Nociceptors, common in the skin, joint capsules, and around the walls of blood vessels, are sensory receptors for: Answer physical distortion chemical concentration pain temperature 5 points Question 10 1. The general sensory receptors that respond to physical distortion are the: Answer nociceptors thermoreceptors mechanoreceptors chemoreceptors 5 points Question 11 1.
