In anatomy, special senses are the senses that have organs specifically devoted to them such as vision, gustation, olfaction, audition, and equilibrioception. These senses have specialized organs that detect and process stimuli and send signals to the brain which lead to the perception of that stimulus.

    Special and General Senses. The human body has two basic types of senses, called special senses and general senses. Special senses have specialized sense organs that gather sensory information and change it into nerve impulses. Special senses include vision (for which the eyes are the specialized sense organs), hearing (ears), balance (ears. The special senses are all primarily part of the somatic nervous system in that they are consciously perceived through cerebral processes, though some special senses contribute to autonomic function. The general senses can be divided into somatosensation, which is commonly considered touch, but includes tactile, pressure, vibration, temperature.

    The Special Senses system allows the body to react to environment by providing sight, hearing, taste, smell, and Organs are the Eye, Ear, Tongue, and Structures are. In this chapter, we will review the organization and function of the special senses, focusing on vision, vestibular, hearing, taste, and proprioception. These special senses, like somatosensation, each have specific receptors that translate external stimuli to neural coding, neural projections that convey these neural impulses centrally, and.

6 Special Senses. The human body experiences its environment by reacting to stimuli that reach the brain via the nervous system.

The somatic or general senses, including touch, temperature perception, pain, and proprioception (the awareness of one’s position and movement in space), use the free nerve endings in the skin, muscles, and membranes of the body to detect change and communicate.

The special senses book from Physiology of the Special Senses Another class of readers which I have had in mind are those who are either taking up physiology as a branch of liberal education, or with a view of presenting themselves for certain higher professional examinations.

Special Senses and Speech. How do we evaluate visual disorders. What are visual disorders. Visual disorders are abnormalities of the eye, the optic nerve, the optic tracts, or the brain that may cause a loss of visual acuity or visual fields.

A loss of visual acuity limits your ability to distinguish detail, read, do fine work, or. Special senses detect the sensations of taste, smell, hearing, equilibrium, and sight, only in special sense organs in the head region (a phenomenon known as “cephalization").

In many of the special senses, the axons leaving the sensory receptors have a topographical arrangement, meaning that the location of the sensory receptor relates to the location of the axon in the nerve.

For example, in the retina, axons from RGCs in the fovea are located at the center of the optic nerve, where they are surrounded by axons. These special senses and the cranial nerves that subserve them represent the most finely developed parts of the sensory nervous system.
