150 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Nociceptors = pain receptors Free nerve endings with large receptive fields and broad sensitivity Do not adapt quickly Two axon types carry pain information 1. Myelinated type A fibers 2. Unmyelinated type C fibers

151 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Nociceptors (continued) Two axon types carry pain signals 1. Myelinated type A fibers fast pain (prickling pain) Sensations quickly reach primary somatosensory cortex for conscious awareness; often trigger somatic reflexes Can usually localize the stimulus

152 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Nociceptors (continued) 2. Unmyelinated type C fibers slow pain Burning/aching General activation of reticular formation and thalamus Aware of pain but just general idea what area is affected

153 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Thermoreceptors = temperature receptors Free nerve endings in dermis, skeletal muscles, liver, hypothalamus Cold receptors three to four times more numerous than warm receptors No structural differences between warm and cold thermoreceptors

154 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Chemoreceptors respond to water-soluble and lipid-soluble substances dissolved in body fluids (interstitial fluid, blood, CSF)

155 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Mechanoreceptors respond to physical distortion of their plasma membranes Membranes have mechanically gated ion channels that open/close in response to stretching, compression, twisting, etc. Three types of mechanoreceptors 1. Proprioceptors 2. Baroreceptors 3. Tactile receptors

156 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Mechanoreceptors (continued) Three types (continued) 1. Proprioceptors monitor position of joints/muscles most complex of general sensory receptors Example: muscle spindle 2. Baroreceptors detect pressure changes in blood vessels and in digestive, respiratory, and urinary tracts 3. Tactile receptors provide sensations of touch (shape/texture), pressure, and vibration Fine touch and pressure receptors give detailed information; extremely sensitive Crude touch and pressure receptors give little information; poor localization

157 Module 13.17: Receptor classification

158 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Receptors categorized by nature of their response to stimulation Tonic receptors Slow-adapting; always active Action potential frequency reflects level of stimulation Increased stimulus = increased action potential frequency

159 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Phasic receptors Fast-adapting; normally inactive Become active for short time when a change occurs in what they are monitoring

160 Module 13.17: Receptor classification Adaptation = reduction in sensitivity with constant stimulus Two types 1. Peripheral adaptation occurs when level of receptor activity changes; receptor first responds strongly, then activity declines Especially characteristic of phasic receptors Example: temperature not noticed much unless it changes

161 Module 13.17: Receptor classification 2. Central adaptation occurs along sensory pathways in CNS; involves inhibition of nuclei along a sensory pathway Example: new smell once it is initially detected, awareness almost stops even though neurons are still sending signals

162 Module 13.17: Review A. List the four types of general sensory receptors based on function, and identify the type of stimulus that excites each type. B. Describe the three classes of mechanoreceptors. C. Explain adaptation, and differentiate between peripheral adaptation and central adaptation. Learning Outcome: Explain the ways in which receptors can be classified.

163 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors have a simple structure and are abundant in the skin Tactile sensory receptors = mechanoreceptors responding to touch, pressure, vibration Greatest diversity in the skin Six types of tactile receptors in the skin 1. Free nerve endings 2. Root hair plexuses 3. Tactile discs 4. Tactile corpuscles 5. Lamellar corpuscles 6. Bulbous corpuscles

164 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors Six types of tactile receptors in skin (continued) 1. Free nerve endings Branching dendrite tips of sensory neurons Nonspecific respond to touch, pressure, pain, temperature Most common receptors in skin

165 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors Six types of tactile receptors in skin (continued) 2. Root hair plexus Monitor distortion/movement of hair follicle Displacement of hair distorts sensory dendrites; generates action potentials Adapt rapidly

166 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors Six types of tactile receptors in skin (continued) 3. Tactile discs Fine touch and pressure Extremely sensitive tonic receptors Very small receptive fields A tactile disc is composed of a Merkel cell (large epithelial cell in stratum basale) and dendritic processes from single myelinated afferent fiber that are in contact with it

167 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors Six types of tactile receptors in skin (continued) 4. Tactile corpuscles (Meissner s corpuscles) Fine touch, pressure, low-frequency vibration Adapt within a second Abundant in eyelids, lips, fingertips, nipples, external genitalia Tactile corpuscles composed of dendrites surrounded by Schwann cells, all wrapped in fibrous capsule

168 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors Six types of tactile receptors in skin (continued) 5. Lamellar corpuscles (Pacinian corpuscles) Sensitive to deep pressure Fast-adapting most sensitive to pulsing or high-frequency vibration Large receptors up to 4 mm long and 1 mm in diameter Abundant in fingers, mammary glands, external genitalia, fasciae, joint capsules, some viscera (mesenteries, pancreas, urethra, and bladder) Lamellar corpuscles composed of single dendrite within concentric layers of collagen fibers and fibroblasts

169 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors Six types of tactile receptors in skin (continued) 6. Bulbous corpuscles (Ruffini corpuscles) Sensitive to pressure and distortion of deep dermis (skin stretched) Tonic receptors; little adaptation Ruffini corpuscles are composed of capsule around core of collagen fibers continuous with those of adjacent dermis, and inner network of dendrites wrapped around collagen fibers Tension/distortion of dermis stimulates dendrite

170 Module 13.18: Tactile receptors

171 Module 13.18: Review A. Which types of tactile receptors are located only in the dermis? B. Which is likely to be more sensitive to continuous deep pressure: a lamellar corpuscle or a bulbous corpuscle? Learning Outcome: List the types of tactile receptors, and specify the functions of each.

172 Module 13.19: Three major somatic sensory pathways carry information from the skin and muscles to the CNS Somatotopy = functional map of primary somatosensory cortex Sensory homunculus ( little human ) = somatotope showing the relative size of cortex devoted to any specific body area

173 Module 13.19: Somatic sensory pathways Three major somatic sensory pathways 1. Spinothalamic pathway 2. Posterior column pathway 3. Spinocerebellar pathway

179 Module 13.19: Somatic sensory pathways

180 Module 13.19: Review A. Define somatotopy. B. Which spinal tracts carry action potentials generated by nociceptors? C. Which cerebral hemisphere receives impulses conducted by the right gracile fasciculus? Learning Outcome: Identify and describe the major sensory pathways.

181 Module 13.20: The somatic nervous system controls skeletal muscles through upper and lower motor neurons Somatic motor pathways Always involve at least two motor neurons 1. Upper motor neuron Cell body in a CNS processing center 2. Lower motor neuron Cell body in a nucleus of brainstem or spinal cord Upper motor neuron synapses on lower motor neuron, which then innervates a single motor unit of a skeletal muscle

182 Module 13.20: The somatic nervous system controls skeletal muscles through upper and lower motor neurons Motor homunculus = functional map of primary motor cortex Proportions reflect number of motor units innervated and degree of fine motor control in corresponding body region

183 Module 13.20: Motor pathways Corticospinal pathway Voluntary control of skeletal muscles Sometimes called the pyramidal system upper motor neurons start at pyramidal cells in primary motor cortex Upper motor neuron axons descend into brainstem and spinal cord Synapse with lower motor neurons that control skeletal muscles

184 Module 13.20: Motor pathways Tracts of the corticospinal pathway 1. Corticobulbar (bulbar, brainstem) tracts conscious control of skeletal muscles for eye, jaw, face, some muscles of neck/pharynx Synapse on lower motor neurons in cranial nerve motor nuclei 2. Corticospinal tracts conscious control of skeletal muscles Visible along ventral surface of medulla oblongata as pair of thick bands (pyramids) ~15 percent descend uncrossed as anterior corticospinal tracts; cross over in anterior white commissure before synapsing on lower motor neurons in anterior gray horns

185 Corticospinal pathways

186 Module 13.20: Motor pathways Two main pathways for subconscious motor commands Commands issued from cerebrum, diencephalon, brainstem 1. Lateral pathway muscle tone/precise movements of distal limb muscles Upper motor neurons start in red nucleus Axons cross to opposite side of brain; descend through rubrospinal (ruber, red) tracts

187 Module 13.20: Motor pathways 2. Medial pathway gross movements of trunk, proximal limb Upper motor neurons located in vestibular nuclei, superior and inferior colliculi, and reticular formation Three major sets of tracts in medial pathway 1. Reticulospinal tracts 2. Vestibulospinal tracts 3. Tectospinal tracts

188 Module 13.20: Motor pathways Medial pathway (continued) Reticulospinal tracts Axons of upper motor neurons in reticular formation Reticular formation receives input from almost every ascending/descending pathway and has extensive connections with cerebrum, cerebellum, and brainstem Vestibulospinal tracts Start at vestibular nuclei of CN VIII (vestibulocochlear nerve.) Get sensory information from internal ear about head position/movement; send motor commands to alter muscle tone and position of neck, head, eyes, limbs

189 Module 13.20: Motor pathways Medial pathway (continued) Tectospinal tracts Upper motor neurons in superior/inferior colliculi (midbrain) Reflex changes in position of head, neck, upper limb in response to bright light, sudden movement, loud noises

190 The Medial Pathway

192 Module 13.20: Review A. Describe the role of the corticobulbar tracts. B. Define corticospinal tracts. C. What effect would increased stimulation of the motor neurons of the red nucleus have on muscle tone? Learning Outcome: Describe the components, processes, and functions of the somatic motor pathways.

193 Module 13.21: There are multiple levels of somatic motor control Many nuclei in spinal cord and brain are involved in controlling skeletal muscle contractions Generally, the closer the motor center is to the cerebral cortex, the more complex the motor activity Cerebellum coordinates motor activities at multiple levels

194 Module 13.21: Levels of somatic motor control Levels of somatic motor control (least to most complex): 1. Brainstem/spinal cord 2. Pons/medulla oblongata 3. Hypothalamus 4. Thalamus/midbrain 5. Basal nuclei 6. Cerebellum 7. Cerebral cortex

195 Levels of motor control

196 Module 13.21: Levels of somatic motor control Preparing for movement Decision to move begins relay of information from: Frontal lobes premotor cortex basal nuclei/cerebellum

197 Module 13.21: Levels of somatic motor control As movement begins: Information is sent from premotor cortex to primary motor cortex Commands are modified by feedback from cerebellum/basal nuclei

198 Module 13.21: Levels of somatic motor control Effects of primary motor cortex damage Person loses fine motor control over skeletal muscles Some voluntary movements will still be controlled by basal nuclei with input from prefrontal cortex Cerebellum cannot fine-tune movements because corticospinal pathway is inoperative An individual is able to stand, balance, and walk, but movements are hesitant, awkward, poorly controlled

199 Module 13.21: Review A. Which brain regions control reflexes in response to visual and auditory stimuli that are experienced while viewing a movie? B. The basic reflex motor patterns related to eating and drinking are controlled by which region of the brain? C. During a tennis match, you decide how and where to hit the ball. Explain how the premotor cortex is involved in your decisions. Learning Outcome: Describe the levels of information processing involved in motor control.

200 Module 13.22: Nervous system disorders may result from problems with neurons, pathways, or a combination of the two Referred pain Sensation of pain in a part of the body other than its actual source Example: pain of a heart attack felt in left arm Strong visceral pain sensations arriving at a spinal cord segment can stimulate interneurons in spinothalamic pathway Stimulates primary sensory cortex Pain perceived pain as coming from corresponding part of body surface (see sensory homunculus)

201 13.22: Nervous system disorders Parkinson s disease Substantia nigra neurons damaged or secrete less dopamine Basal nuclei become more active, increasing muscle tone and producing stiffness and rigidity Starting movements is difficult because antagonistic muscle groups do not relax (must be overpowered) Every part of a movement must be voluntarily controlled through intense effort and concentration

202 13.22: Nervous system disorders Rabies Bite from rabid animal injects rabies virus into peripheral tissues; virus enters axon terminals Virus carried by axons back into CNS through retrograde flow Potentially fatal results Many toxins, pathogenic bacteria, and other viruses also bypass CNS defenses through axoplasmic transport

203 13.22: Nervous system disorders Cerebral palsy (CP) Number of disorders that affect voluntary movement Motor dysfunction is nonprogressive Appears during infancy/childhood; persists throughout life Cause may be: Trauma from premature/stressful childbirth Maternal exposure to drugs (including alcohol) Genetic defect disrupting motor pathway development

204 13.22: Nervous system disorders Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Progressive, degenerative disorder affecting motor neurons in spinal cord, brainstem, cerebrum Destroys upper/lower motor neurons Associated skeletal muscles atrophy Likely defect in axonal transport Also called Lou Gehrig s disease (famous Yankees player who died from it); Stephen Hawking, noted physicist, also afflicted with ALS

205 13.22: Nervous system disorders Alzheimer s disease (AD) Progressive disorder causing loss of higher-order cerebral functions AD patients have intracellular and extracellular abnormalities in hippocampus (affects memory processing) Most common cause of senile dementia, or senility

206 13.22: Nervous system disorders Alzheimer s disease (AD) (continued) Symptoms may appear at age or later; also affects younger people Estimated 2 million people affected in United States (~15 percent of those over 65, ~50 percent of those over 85); ~100,000 deaths/year

207 13.22: Nervous system disorders Multiple sclerosis (sklerosis, hardness) (MS) CNS disease characterized by recurrent incidents of demyelination in axons of optic nerve, brain, spinal cord Common signs/symptoms include impairment of vision, speech, balance, general motor coordination (including urinary/bowel) Time between incidents and degree of recovery vary In about one-third of patients, disease progresses more functional impairment occurs with each incident Onset often occurs at age years; 1.5 times more common in women
