Body Senses Function of Somatosensory System Lets you know when you are standing or falling 0 hurt yourself Cover the burn with a sterile bandage Body Senses Somatosensory system It is both an exteroceptive and interoceptive system Interoceptive monitoring internal bodily events and informing the brain of the positions of body segments relative to one another and of the position of the body in space Somatosensory submodalities 1 nociception the perception of unpleasant noxious stimuli pain and temperature 2 Hapsis the perception of objects with the use of fine touch and pressure 3

open sodium channels What is touch Where are touch receptors Touch is to use your skin to have physical contact with another object Touch receptors are located in clusters around your skin They look like onions orjelly material When they are squeezed the layers rub against each other causing an electrical nerve impulse the most sensitive touch receptors are located at your face back of the neck

taste and smell Taste and smell are chemical senses They give us information about the chemical composition of our surroundings Taste is an immediate sense a final checkpoint for the acceptablity of food before it enters the body Smell is a more distant sense allowing us to detect small concentrations of airborne substances Taste and smell only separated when animals moved to land Since in the sea all chemicals are dissolved in the same medium water there is no need for two separate senses Fish and other sea creatures haveone general chemical sense Taste is not just in the mouth Catfish have chemoreceptors all along their body a catfish is like a giant tongue and flies have receptors on their feet so that they can tell immediately upon landing whether an object is good to eat l Taste Why do we need taste Taste is a gatekeeper sensory mechanism designed to test food and other substances before they enter the body Things that are potentially useful for the body tend to taste good and things that are potentially harmful taste bad Anatomy of Taste The tongue contains many ridges and valleys called papillae There are four types of papillae Filiform papillae cone shaped amp found all over the tongue which is why tongues look rough Fungiform papillaemushroom shaped and found at the tip and sides Foliate papillae a series of folds along the sides of thetongue Circumvallate papillae shaped like flat mounds surrounded by a trench and found at the back of thetongue All papillae except filiformcontain taste buds so the very center of your tongue which only has filiform papillae is taste blind lift Jl39ro39ln o ll 139 I 39v l 4 x39 f 39 v 39t 1 Foliatequot t r k r Filiform o Oi 1 o t b s I r 39 r 3 quotIf1uff f g u 39aste cud a walk l U l Fmglorm partulla 39 i I I l

signals generated in the taste cells are transmitted in three pathways The nerve conducts signals from the front and sides of the tongue The nerve conducts signals from the back of the tongue The conducts taste signals from the mouth and the larynx These three nerves make connections in the brain stem in the nucleus of the solitary tract NST before going on to the and then to two regions of the frontal lobe the insula and the frontal operculum cortex Frontal operculum lnsula Temporal lobes Glossopharyngeal nerve Vagus nerve Nucleus of the solitary tract The Neural Code for Taste What tastes do we taste The four basic tastes are All of our taste sensations can be described as a combination of these four basic tastes are most sensitive to different tastes Experience of Taste Your experience of taste depends on your on your familiar foods generally taste better than unfamiliar foods and your people have different sensitivities to certain tastes Taste experience is also subject to effects of adaptation Why does orange juice taste gross after you39ve just brushed your teeth Our sensation of taste also depends heavily on smell and texture touch Ever notice how food just
