N-28 LEARNING OBJECTIVES: FUNDAMENTALS OF SENSORY PROCESSING 1. Describe how receptors signal changes in the environment. 2. Describe the conceptual differences between the specific sensory pathways (e.g., three neuron pathway) and nonspecific sensory pathways. 3. Define “sensory unit.” Draw a sketch of a typical sensory unit on the index finger, and contrast that with a typical sensory unit on the back. 4. On a diagram of the cerebral cortex, identify the locations of the somatosensory, visual, and auditory primary sensory regions. 5. Describe the neuronal mechanisms responsible for determining the stimulus type, stimulus intensity, stimulus location, and stimulus duration. 6. From a graph of the firing pattern of an afferent fiber, define whether the receptor is slowly adapting, a velocity detector, or an acceleration detector.
