Multiple Choice Questions

1. all special sensory receptors (other than olfactory) (sight, smell, hearing, etc.)

a. Examples of non-neural receptors

b. Examples of neural receptors

c. waves per second

d. Example of labeled line coding

2. Labeled Line Coding

a. The brain “labels” each incoming signal pathway in order to differentiate between

different types of stimuli. Every incoming signal is interpreted according to this label.

Therefore the stimulation of any receptor will always be perceived to be its adequate

stimulus. A receptor may respond to some other stimulus, but the perception will still be

the same. THIS IS KNOWN AS:

b. These receptors respond to chemical ligands that bind to them

c. the ability to distinguish between closely located stimuli

d. these are touch, proprioception, temperature, and nociception

3. depolarize

a. These respond to mechanical energy such as touch or vibration

b. They _____ in the same manner as the neuron discussed in the action potential lab.

c. Neurons in the brain are concentrated in the …

d. The pattern of ____ in the brain changes with the level of ____.

4. menthol causing sensation of being “cool” in the mouth by stimulating thermoreceptors

a. Examples of neural receptors

b. pain and itch

c. Example of labeled line coding:

d. waves per second

5. resolution

a. the nature of the stimulus

b. the strength of a stimulus

c. the ability to distinguish between closely located stimuli

d. Example of labeled line coding:

True/False Questions

1. wave height/area → frequency

True False

2. these are touch, proprioception, temperature, and nociception → Thermoreceptors

True False

3. muscle tension and length and limb position → Thermoreceptors

True False

4. the intensity of stimuli is encoded in the frequency of action potentials sent to the brain →

perceptual threshold

True False

5. Theta dominant wave pattern; 40-50% of sleep; sleep spindles along with K complexes; heart

and breathing rates decrease only slightly; eyes are generally still; sleep is not deep →
