cells that are sensitive to mechanical deformation 0 These cells are sensitive to uid shifts and the movement of other structures such as otoliths in the saccule and utricle Neural signals are generated by changes in these hair cells These cells are transmitted to the brain for interpretation 0 Chemoreceptors detect chemical changes for the senses of taste and smell Taste receptors are located within taste buds in the tongue Dissolved molecules bind to receptor sites producing receptor potentials All tastes are varying combinations of the four basic tastes salt sweet sour bitter Fifth taste has been recognized Any chemical produces the differential stimulation of the four receptors for taste This generates a pattern of action potentials that travels along afferent pathways to the brain One pathway passes through the limbic system for emotional and behavioral processing Another pathway passes through the thalamus to the cerebral cortex for conscious processing 0 Olfactory receptors in the nose are specialized ending of afferent neurons Different olfactory receptors detect discrete parts of an odor Odor discrimination is coded by patterns of activity in the olfactory bulb glomeruli Afferent signals are sorted by scent component The olfactory system adapts quickly

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
