Varieties of Stimuli and their Receptors


Sensory adaptations and response to stimuli

Sense Organs

Sense organs carry messages about the environment to the central nervous system.


Sensory adaptations and response to stimuli

Sense Organs

The eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin are examples of sense organs.

The sense organs gather information (light, sound, heat, and pressure) from the environment.


Sensory adaptations and response to stimuli

Environment

The environment is everything outside the body.

The sense organs gather information from outside the body, then send the messages to the brain.


Sensory adaptations and response to stimuli

Vision is your ability to see.

Vision

Vision involves the eye and the brain.


Photoreception

Photoreception

Photoreceptors detect “photo” stimuli and are located on the retina. Two light sensitive cells:

  • Rods

    • light intensity and motion sensitive

  • Cones

    • color sensitive

    • Many are present on the fovea centralis

      The blind spot for the eye is cause by the optic nerve.


Myopia near sightedness

Myopia (Near-Sightedness)

People with near-sightedness cannot see clearly at distance. Correction via concave lenses.


Hyperopia farsightedness

Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

People with far-sightedness cannot see clearly up close. Correction with convex lenses.


Astigmatism an uneven curvature of the eyeball

Astigmatism – an uneven curvature of the eyeball
