**Detect membrane distortion
Three receptor types:
- Monitor pressure, tension and movement in the joint
- Smooth and cardiac muscle, glands, and adipose
- voluntary control
- subconscious control:reflex
- coordination, balance, fine tuning

When the nociceptors in your hand are stimulated, what sensation do you perceive?
What would happen to you if the information from proprioceptors in your legs were blocked from reaching the CNS?
**Nuclei = in CNS, a center with a visible boundary
**Ganglia = in PNS, collection of somas together in one place
(cholinergic synapse) EPSP on ganglionic neuron
- directly open ion channel
- fast acting, short lived
- excititory/stimulatory to effector
**beta-blockers: block beta1 receptors
- Excititory effect on target
- Inhibitory or excititory, depends on target cell
How many motor neurons are required to conduct an action potential from the spinal cord to smooth muscles in the wall of the intestine?
While out for a brisk walk, Julie is suddenly confronted by an angry dog. Which division of the autonomic nervous system is responsible for the physiological changes that occur in Julie as she turns and runs?
On the basis of anatomy, how could you distinguish the sympathetic division from the parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system?
How would a drug that stimulates acetylcholine receptors affect the sympathetic nervous system?
An individual with high blood pressure is given a medication that blocks beta receptors. How could this medication help correct that person’s condition?
Which nerve is responsible for the parasympathetic innervation of the lungs, heart, stomach, liver, pancreas, and parts of the small and large intestines?
What effect would the loss of sympathetic tone have on blood flow to a tissue?
What physiological changes would you expect in a patient who is about to undergo a root canal and is quite anxious about the procedure?
Harry has a brain tumor that is interfering with the function of his hypothalamus. Would you expect this tumor to interfere with autonomic function? Why or why not?
e.g. memory and consciousness
Which of the following is not a characteristic of higher order functions?

As you recall facts while you take your A&P test, which type of memory are you using?
You are asleep. What would happen to you if your reticular activating system were suddenly stimulated?
* All forms of deposits affect processing and memory ability, motor speed, and sensory sensitivity
