Class Summary - Today we talked about touch. We talked about the 5 receptors (mechanorecpetors, thermoreceptors, photoreceptors, nociceptors, and chemoreceptors) which is a review from last unit. We talked about how general sensory receptors are categorized into three categories; proprioreceptors - muscle - balance and equilibrium, cutaneous receptors - skin - several types, touch and pressure, and pain receptors - skin and internal organs - pain.
Homework - None
Objectives - Students will categorize sensory receptors according to five types of stimuli. Students will discuss the function of propriorecepters. Students will relate specific sensory receptors in the skin to particular sense of the skin. Students will discuss the phenomenon of referred pain.
