VOCABULARY: 1. Filiform 2. Fungiform 3. Circumvallate 4. Basal cell 5. Glomeruli 6. Stimulus 7. Receptor 8. Phasic receptors 9. Tonic receptors 10. Stimulus modality 11. Somesthetic senses 12. transduction 1. Filiform: no taste buds 2. Fungiform: taste buds found over entire tongue but more numerous on sides and tip 3. Circumvallate: with taste buds; few in number, form V on back of tongue 4. Basal Cell: regenerates olfactory neurons and gustatory cells, also supporting cells 5. Golmeruli: in olfactory where dendrites of mitral and tufted cells reach down and axons of olfactory cells reach up…forms clusters…each glomeruli dedicated to particular odor 6. Stimulus: sensory input that causes change in the body (pain, heat, pressure, sound) 7. Receptor: specialized receptor that receives stimulus and converts it to another form of energy 8. Phasic Receptors: quickly adapt (hair movement, cutaneous pressure, smell) 9. Tonic recpetors: adapt more slowly (brain must always be aware of muscle tension, joint
