Your Five SensesBY: Sophia Chrostowski

Bitter: bitter is located at the very back of your tongue.Sweet: sweet is located at the tip of the front of your tongue.Sour: sour is located at the sides/edges of your tongue.Salty: salty is located near the front of your tongue.Umami: umami is located right in the middle of your tongue.

Epiglotis: The epiglottis is a part of your body that flops over the windpipe. It is behind the back of your tongue and if you swallow, it keeps it from going to your lungs. Without it, you would choke every time you swallow.

Filliform Papillae: thin and V shaped cones that don’t have any taste buds. These papillae are mechanical and not involved in gestation.

Vallate Papillae: The vallate papillae are involved in sensations and have taste buds embedded on their surfaces.



Fungiform Papillae: rigid grooves toward posterior part of the roof of your mouth which is innervated by facial nerve and posterior papillae

Nasal Cavity: The nasal cavity is behind your nose and in the middle of your face and it separates your mouth and nasal cavity by the palate which is the roof of your mouth. It is a big hole covered in mucus that collects all of the odors.

Olfactory/Receptor Cells: The olfactory is located on the roof on your nasal cavity. This fancy word has something to do with smelling, They are sensitive to odor molecules which travel in the air because of special receptors. We have 10 million of them in our noses.

Nostril: your nostrils are the two holes at the bottom of your nose and the nasal passages are separated by the something called the septum.


Olfactory Bulb: When receptors are simulated, the signals travel to the olfactory nerve and then travels to the olfactory bulb. The olfactory is located above your nasal cavity and underneath the front of your brain.

Subcutaneous Layer: The subcutaneous layer is the third layer of your skin. It absorbs shocks and keeps you keep warm, it is mostly made of fat, it also helps hold your skin to all the tissues underneath it.

Hair: Subcutaneous layer is where you find the starting of hair. All of your hair grows from a small tube called the follicle. You will find hair all over the body.

Touch Receptor: Your touch receptor can sense pain, temperature, and pressure. It also carries a message to the brain. They are found all over your body because every part of your body can feel these things.

Epidermis: It is the layer on the outside with three layers of skin which is a part of skin you can see and is hard at work because it gives you newer skin in case it gets peeled, there is new skin under that layer. You have sweat glands in the epidermis, the sweat comes up through pores.

Blood Vessels: Your dermis is filled with many blood vessels. They keep them healthy by bringing the things they need like oxygen, nutrients, and taking away waste and they are the home of your oil glands. When you begin to get older, they are a lot more easy to see

Dermis: Your dermis is located under the epidermis. The nerve endings in your dermis tell you how something feels like. It also contains nerve endings, blood vessels, oil glands, sweat glands, collagen and elastin and they are stretchy and tough


Retina:provides the sharpest vision because of a small section at the center of the retina - below the optic nervelines the inside wall of the eye with seven layersCornea: In front of eyehelps focus light when it enters the eyeit is a clear outer membranePupil:opening in the center of the irisgets large in the dark and small in bright lightit helps us see bright and darkIris:the iris is in back of the pupilvery colorful part of the eyemakes the pupil get bigger or smaller according to the light that enters the eyeLens:a piece of tissue behind the pupilpeople wear glasses or contact lenses to help the lens focus on light correctly onto their eyes - onto what?a piece of tissueVitreous:behind the lensit gives the eyeball its shapeit is a piece of the eye that gives the shape made of a clear fluidmade of?Optic Nerve:gathers signals produced from the retina - from where?transmits to the brainnear the brain


Outer EarEar Canal:The ear canal sends sound waves to the eardrum.The sound from the pinna passes down to the ear canalbrings sound to middle ear.Pinna: The pinna collects sound waves.the pinna is the top of your outer earMiddle EarTympanum (eardrum): The sound wave causes the eardrum to vibrateThe higher the pitch or frequency, the more it vibratesMalleus (hammer): _ The vibrations from the eardrum pass down to the hammerthe hammer is next to the incusIncus (anvil): The sounds from the hammer, next pass to the Incus.the incus is next to the stirrup and hammerStapes (stirrup): The sounds from the Incus, next pass to the stirrupbetween the ear drum and cochlea, there is the stirrupInner Earreceives sound in the form of vibrations The cochlea is filled with different fluidsAcoustic nerve: transmits nerve signals to the brain.the acoustic nerve is behind the cochleaOrgans of balance (semi-circular canals):The liquid in the semi circular canals send a message to your brain to tell you the position of your head.Eustachian tube: a narrow tube that connects the space behind the ear drumdrains and balances pressure in the middle ear
