SpecialSenses  Smell, Taste, Hearing and Equilibrium, Vision Olfactory Sense - Smell  Olfactory Organs  Called olfactory epithelium • Contains receptors  Yellowish-brown masses  Surrounded by mucous membranes – Covers roof of nasal cavity and part of nasal septum Olfactory receptors • Chemoreceptors • Stimulated by chemicals dissolved in mucus – Once stimulated • Impulses travel along axons of receptor cells • Axons grouped into fascicles – Stimulation • Pass through tiny openings in the cribriform plates of the ethmoid bone • Synapse with neurons in olfactory bulbs • Impulse travels along olfactory tracts to olfactory cortex in the uncus Gustatory Sense - Taste  Taste Buds - special organs of taste – On surface of tongue – Associated with papillae - tiny elevations – Modified epithelial cells called Taste or Gustatory cells  Taste Buds Function as receptors – Taste bud is somewhat spherical – Taste pore - opening on free surface – Taste hairs protrude from taste pore • Tiny projections (microvilli) • Sensitive part of receptor cell – Taste receptors are chemoreceptors • Modified epithelial cells, not nerve cells • Chemicals dissolved in watery fluid surrounding taste buds - trigger receptor potential  Sensitive to five types of substances – Sweet: tip of tongue – Sour: lateral margins – Salty: tip and along lateral edges – Bitter: back of tongue* cilia?  New taste – Umami (ooh - mommy) • “Meaty” taste produced by amino acids • Tongue region unknown Ear - Auditory - Hearing  Responds to sound waves – Caused by compression waves in air • Air is compressed, relaxed, compressed - wave results • Ear - Auditory - Hearing  Vibration received by outer ear  Amplified by middle ear  Received, transduced, and transmitted by inner ear  Transmitted to auditory cortex  Ear - Auditory - Hearing Structure - Outer Ear – Pinna or auricle • Gathers and funnels sound – External Auditory Meatus • Contains hairs and modified sweat glands • Ceruminous glands - secrete cerumen (ear wax) – KEEP OUT FOREIGN OBJECTS Structure - Middle Ear – Typanic cavity: • Air filled space between outer & inner ear – Tympanic Membrane “Ear Drum” • Semitransparent membrane at end of ear canal • Outer surface: thin layer of skin • Inner surface: mucous membrane Tympanic Membrane – Oval margin – Cone-shaped - apex directed inward – Ear - Auditory - Hearing – Auditory Ossicles - 3 small bones – Transmit vibrations from eardrum to inner ear • Malleus (hammer) - attached to tympanic membrane • Incus (anvil) – Transmits vibration to the Stapes • Stapes (stirrup) - attached to the oval window – Opening to inner ear  Tensor Tympani Muscle – Attached to medial surface of malleus, wall of auditory tube – Pulls malleus inward – Tightens tympanic membrane - damps or reduces vibration  Stapedius - Attached to posterior side of stapes, posterior wall of tympanic cavity – Pulls stapes outward away from oval window – also damps vibration Tympanic reflex – Initiated by loud sound - muscles contract – Make tympanic membrane & oval window rigid – Protects inner ear - less vibration transmitted • Ear - Auditory - Hearing Eustachian tube – Connects middle ear with the nasopharynx – Allows air to pass between tympanic cavity and exterior via throat and mouth – Maintain equal air pressure on both sides of tympanic membrane – With unequal pressure - eardrum can’t vibrate – Auditory tube is normally flattened – When pressure changes - must open system to equalize pressure between tympanic cavity and the outside – Swallow, yawn, and chew Inner Ear - Hearing – Labyrinth - complex system of tubes and chambers which comprises the inner ear – Major divisions: 1) Osseous labyrinth 2) Membranous labyrinth inside  Osseous labyrinth - divided into structurally and functionally into 3 different regions: 1. Cochlea - functions in hearing 2. Semicircular canals (3) - equilibrium 3. Vestibule - opening which serves both – Structures actually holes in solid temporal bone Cochlea – Actual organ of hearing – Coiled, spiral shaped, 2 1/2 turns – Divided into 3 parallel compartments  Basilar membrane – Narrow and thick near oval window – Becomes wider and thinner toward apex – Supports the Organ of Corti or spiral organ • Contains sound receptors - Cochlear hair cells Path of Sound Transmission  Gathered and enters external ear  Vibration of tympanic membrane – Low frequencies - slow vibration – High frequencies- fast vibration  Moves auditory ossicles- malleus, incus, stapes  Stapes move oval window – Path of Sound Transmission (cont’d)  Oval window movement – Compresses perilymph to scala vestibuli – Creates a wave in perilymph  Vibrations transmitted across vestibular membrane – To endolymph in cochlear duct – Path of Sound Transmission (cont’d)  Endolymph pushes down on basilar membrane – Moves basilar membrane – Moves hair cells’ stereocilia  Tectorial membrane contact causes hairs to bend – Produces receptor potential – Leads to transmission of impulse interpreted as sound  Path of Sound Transmission (cont’d)  Vibrations pass through perilymph of scala tympani – Dissipated by movement of membrane covering round window- secondary tympanic membrane
