Remember that integration is always last and
the amplification must follow transduction
- Senses come from stimulus and
represents a form of energy
- Sensory receptor converts stimulus into
enery to change membrane potential
- Sensory input integration motor
- Signal transduction amplifies the stim

Receptor Types
Chemoreceptors chemical solute
or molecular detection
Mechanorecepts pressure, touch, stretch,
motion and sound
Thermoreceptors surface and core
Nociceptors pain
Electromagnetic receptors electromagnetic
Which are incorrectly matched:
Hair cell and mechanoreceptors
Muscle spindle mechanoreceptor
Taste receptor chemoreceptor
Rod electromagnetic receptor
Olfactory receptor electromagnetic receptor
Tastes and smells are distinct kinds of
environmental information in that neural
projections from taste receptors reach different
parts of the brain than the neural projections
from olfactory receptor

Musce spindles: a group of dendrite-
encircled muscle fibres
- Muscle spindles are stretch
receptors within the body of
a musclethat primarily detect
changes in the length of the muscle.
They convey length information to
