Gustatory sense (anatomy)

GUSTATORY SENSE ANATOMY The gustatory receptors, which refers to the receptors which initiate the sense of taste, is found within the taste buds. They are highly specialized epithelial cells. They cluster together in the taste buds and are quite responsive to chemical stimuli, thus categorizing them as chemoreceptors. The glossopharyngeal nerve more...

Olfactory sense (anatomy)

OLFACTORY SENSE ANATOMY The olfactory portion of the cerebral cortex receives the necessary information to determine and discern smell via olfactory receptors. These are the dendritic ends that belong to the olfactory nerve and respond to chemical stimuli. This information is then sent directly to the brain for interpretation. Nature has more...

Sense of hearing and balance (anatomy)

SENSE OF HEARING AND BALANCE ANATOMY Hearing involves structures that are formed in the inner ear, the middle ear, and the outer ear. The inner ear contains structures specifically related to balance and equilibrium. During embryonic development, the inner ear begins developing at age 4 weeks (gestational) and is complete at more...

Somatic senses (anatomy)

SOMATIC SENSES ANATOMY The coetaneous receptors and proprioceptors are the hosts of the somatic senses. The level of stimulus combined with the specific density of the receptors is a key factor in determining the level of perception understood by somatic receptors. SOMATIC SENSES STRUCTURE Somatic senses are also sometimes called somesthetic senses. more...

Visual sense (anatomy)

VISUAL SENSE ANATOMY The interpretation of vision occurs in the visual cortex of the occipital lobes. The photoreceptors, which are rod and cone cells, perceive the stimulus of light and energy through the eyeball, and then transmit these visual impulses through the optic nerve and up the optic tract to reach more...
