2. Which of the following is not true for rapidly adapting receptors and is true for ONLY slowly adapting receptors?

  • It is part of a peripheral mechanism to inhibit sensory information so the brain is not overloaded
  • The receptor encodes the duration and intensity of stimuli
  • It characterised by a burst of action potentials which rapidly decays
  • The receptor encodes the dynamic features of stimuli

3. What effect does an increase in intensity have on action potentials?

  • It increases duration of the action potentials
  • It increases the intensity of the action potential itself
  • It increases the frequency of the action potentials
  • It has no effect

4. Where are receptor fields smallest?

  • Where the most discrimination is required
  • Where the surface area of the skin is large
  • Where the least discrimination is required
  • Where the surface area of the skin is smal

5. Brodmann's areas 1 and 3b recieve information from where?

  • Joint receptors
  • Skin receptors
  • Muscle receptors
