The three main things that our vestibular senses recognize are: © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 34: Our static position This is the position we are in when we are not changing position... so if you are lying down or standing up, that is your current, unchanging position. When you shift positions, it is no longer static. © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 35: © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 36: Our velocity (and direction) this is the speed of our motion... are we going fast or slow? Along with this we know our direction of movement, so we know if we are going fast in a forward or backward direction. © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 37: Our acceleration (and direction) this is a change in speed... so if you are going slowly and you speed up, you have accelerated, while if you decrease the speed you are going you have decelerated. Again, you can tell the direction of your acceleration. © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 38: © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 39: The left and right horizontal semicircular canals are mirror images. Turn your head to the left The fluid in both canals starts moving to the right But this rightward movement of endolymph will not excite both the left and the right semicircular canal hair cells. Since the left and the right are mirror images of one another only one of them gets depolarized by leftward movement (rightward flow of endolymph). © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Slide 40: © 2006 STCC Foundation Presswritten by Dawn A. Tamarkin, Ph.D. Gustation (Taste) : Gustation (Taste) SPECIAL SENSE ORGAN Taste - Gustatory : Taste - Gustatory Chemoreceptors called taste buds Cranial Nerves VII and IX carry gustatory impulses Only four kinds of taste sensations Sweet Sour Bitter Salty Gustatory and olfactory senses work together Slide 44: The Physiology of Taste by Tim Jacob For more info For more info Slide 45: The Physiology of Taste by Tim Jacob For more info Slide 46: Taste - A brief tutorial by Tim Jacob For more info Olfaction – Smell : Olfaction – Smell SPECIAL SENSE ORGANS Icons courtesy of Tim Jacob Smell - Olfactory : Smell - Olfactory Cranial Nerve I carry impulses Receptors for fibers of olfactory Lie in olfactory mucosa of nasal cavity Olfactory receptors are extremely sensitive but easily fatigued Human Pheromones : Human Pheromones By Tim Jacob AimThis site is an attempt to assess the available evidence relating to the vomeronasal organ (VNO), human pheromones and their possible role in human behaviour.
