  4. most important ones are on the tongue these are receptors of gustation
    taste receptors
  5. pleasant savory flavors that are particular sensitive to amino acids are
  6. this receptor allows our body not to ingenst to much water by signaling the hypothalumus and releasing a anti divetic hormone
    water receptors
  7. where are the sensory cells located for equil and hearing
    internal ear
  8. what are the inner ear receptor cells called
    hair cells
  9. why are the receptor cells of the inner ear called hair cells
    the surfaces are covered with projections resembling cilia and microvili
  10. what type of sensory cells are hair cells
    mechanoreceptors they control contact and movement
  11. what is the name of the hair cells involved in balance
  12. what is the name of the support cells associated with the hair cells
  13. three anatomical regions of the ear
    external middle and inner
  14. this structure consists of elastic cartilage and is used to collect sound waves and funnel them into the external acoustic meatus
  15. this is the visible portion of the ear that directs sound waves to middle ear
    external ear
  16. air filled cavity seperated by the external acoustic meatus by means of the tympanic membrane. two names
    tympanic cavity or middle ear
  17. sensory organ for hearing and equil
    internal ear
  18. this is the passageway within the temperal bone thru which sound waves travel from the external ear to the tympanic membrane
    external acoustic meatus
  19. glands that secrete earwax
    ceruminous glands
  20. wax found in ears is called
  21. the cerumen has two main functions
    slows microorganism growth and keeps bugs and debrese out
  22. seperates the external ear ffrom the inner ear
    tempanic membrane or ear drum
  23. middle ear infection is called
    otitis media
  24. what are the three inner ear auditory ossicles called
    malleus incus and stapes
  25. this is a collection of fluid and chambers inthe inner ear
    membranous labyrith
  26. fluid found in the membranous labyrith is called
  27. shell of dense bone that protects the membranous labyrinth
    bony labyrinth
  28. bony labyrinth is composed of three parts
    semicircular canals the vestibule and the cochlea
  29. part of the inner ear eqiul that detects rotation gravity and linear acceleration
    vestibular complex
  30. the vestibular complex contains three different parts that detect rotation of the head of three semicircular canals
    semilcircular ducts
  31. two chambers of the vestibular complex that receptors are relative to gravity and linear acceleration
    saccule and utricle
  32. the movement of the stapes at the oval window generates pressure waves that stimulate hair cells at specific locations
    cochlear duct
  33. the hair cells of the utricle and saccule are in oval structures called
