  1. Substance P
    neurotransmitter released by nerves that are sensitive to pain
  2. Intensity of a sound or other stimulus
    Amplitude
  3. chemical that causes neurons containing substance P to release it suddenly and also directly stimulates pain receptors sensitive to moderate heat
    Capsaicin
  4. Structure in the inner ear containing auditory receptors
    Cochlea
  5. Hearing loss that occurs if the bones of the middle ear fail to transmit/conduct sound waves properly to the cochlea
    Conductive deafness (middle-ear deafness)
  6. Dermatome
    Area of skin connected to a particular spinal nerve
  7. Name "Number of sound waves per second", and name how it is measured
    Frequency, in Hertz.
  8. assumption that stimulation of certain nonpain axons in the skin or in the brain can inhibit transmission of pain messages in the spinal cord
    Gate theory
  9. Type of sensory receptor shaped like a X; auditory receptors are X cells.
    Name X
    HAIR cells
  10. Hearing loss that results from damage to the cochlea, the hair cells, or the auditory nerve
    Nerve deafness (inner-ear deafness)
  11. Neurons responsible for the sense of smell, located on the epithelium/membrane in the rear of the nasal air passages
    Olfactory cells
  12. Oval window is in:
    A) inner ear
    B) middle ear
    C) Gozo
    D) outer ear
    A) inner ear
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  13. Pacinian corpuscle
    receptor that responds to a sudden displacement of the skin or highfrequency vibration on the skin
  14. Papilla (pl.: papillae)?

    Structure on the surface of the tongue containing taste buds
  15. Pinna (ear)
    Outer-ear structure of flesh and cartilage that sticks out from each side of the head
  16. Experience that corresponds to the frequency of a sound
    Pitch
  17. Sanal lined with hair cells and oriented in three planes, sensitive to the direction of tilt of the head, it is shaped almost as a circle.
    Semicircular canal
  18. Experience of one sense in response to stimulation of another sense
    Synesthesia
  19. Tympanic membrane, aka. ?
    Eardrum
