QuestionAnswer
Which afferent muscle fibers are responsible for detecting muscle length?
Mechanoreceptor located in the deep dermis. It is fast acting and can detect vibrations
Mechanoreceptor located in the superficial dermis. It is slow acting and can detect skin pressure/ deformation, sensation of form and texture.
The muscle and nociceptive afferents project to which Brodmann's Area within the cortex?
True or False: The secondary somatosensory cortex is involved in shape and texture discrimination.
development of hypersensitivity to the perception of non-noxious stimuli as pain
Mechanoreceptor located in the deep dermis. It is slow acting and can detect skin stretch

True or False: Thermoreceptors of the body are great at determining absolute temperature.
Pain and temperature fibers from the face travel in what tract to synapse in the spinal nucleus of V?
True or False: Local anesthetics function by binding to the inactivated Na voltage gated channels preventing the influx of Na needed to initiate an action potential.
True or False: Some cells of the dorsal horn and the terminals of noiceptive C fibers contain opiod and dynorphin receptors to inhibit the transmission of pain.
