    somatic special sensory
  45. ex of somatic special sensory
    vision, hearing, balance
  46. localized and associated with gut in head, in mouth/throat
    visceral special sensory
  47. ex of visceral special sensory
    taste (only one)
  48. smell can be
    somatic sensory or visceral sensory
  49. found over wide areas of body
    general motor
  50. output to skeletal muscle and main output to CNS
    general somatic motor
  51. output to smooth muscle and glands
    visceral general motor
  52. no motor output at all
    somatic special motor
  53. motor output to muscle, branchial muscles
    special visceral motor
  54. branchial muscles aka
    skeletal muscles
  55. nervous system considers any derivative from splanchnic to be
  56. associated with special sensations, receptors are combo of epithelial cells and sensory neurons
    special sensory receptors
  57. no epithelial cells, sensory neurons detect changes
    general sensory receptors
  58. tied to the type of information they collect
    distribution of receptors
  59. gather info from external environment
  60. ex of exteroreceptors
    epidermis and dermis
  61. where are exteroreceptors located
    near surface of body
  62. gather internal info
  63. where are enteroreceptors located?
    away from surface of body, in epithelium and tissue with internal organs and muscles
  64. ex of enteroreceptors
  65. types of receptors?
    • free nerve endings
    • encapsulated nerve endings
  66. type of receptor with no specialization
    free nerve endings
  67. type of nerve ending with connective tissue wrapped around it
    encapsulated nerve endings
