The 5 Senses

The 5 SensesBy: Juliette Corriveau

Retina: Did you know that the Retina records light and collects the image. Also as light passes through the eye it becomes focused to Retina, where two specialized types of cells convert the light to electrical impulses.Cornea: Did you know that the Cornea protects the eye and begins focusing light.Pupil: Did you know that the Pupil gets bigger when it is bright. It is also controlled by the Iris.Iris: Did you know the Iris controls the amount of light entering the eye. It also adjusts light. Lens: Did you know that lens directs light into the Retina. Also it focuses light.Vitreous: Did you know that the Vitreous inflates the eye and creates a dark area inside. Also it is a shape.Optic Nerve: Did you know that the Optic Nerve transmits information. It also gathers the electrical signals.

Fungiform Papillae: Lingual papillae (singular papilla) are the small, nipple or hair–like structures on the upper surface of the tongue that give the tongue its characteristic rough texture.Filiform Papillae: The fungiform papillae are mushroom shaped projections on the tongueVallate Papillae: The vallate papillae are involved in the sensations of taste and have taste buds embedded in their surfaces.Epiglottis: Epiglottitis is a medical emergency that may result in death if not treated quickly.

Hair: Did you know that each hair on your body grows out of a tiny tube called the follicles? Also there are more than 100,000 follicles on your head alone.Subcutaneous Layer: The subcutaneous layer is the lowermost layer of the integumentary system in vertebrates. It is used mainly for fat storage. Blood Vessels: Is an tubular structure carrying blood through the tissues and organ a vein, a artery or capillary.Epidermis: Did you know the Epidermis is the top layer of skin? It is about thickness of two sheets of notebook paper on most parts of the body?Dermis: Did you know that the Dermis is deeper and is the thicker layer of skin that lies beneath the Epidermis?Touch Receptor: Did you know that the nerve cells that tell your brain about tactile sensations.

Olfactory Bulb: The Olfactory Bulb is a neural structure of the vertebrate forebrain involved in olfaction, or the sense of smell. Olfactory/Receptor Cells: Humans have about 10 million olfactory receptor neurons. Olfactory receptors expressed in the cell membranes of olfactory receptor neurons are responsible for the detection of odor molecules. Nasal Cavity: The nasal cavity (or nasal fossa) is a large air filled space above and behind the nose in the middle of the face. The nasal cavity is a hollow space within the nose and skull that is lined with hairs and mucus membrane. Nostril: Either of two external openings of the nasal cavity in vertebrates that admit air to the lungs and smells to the olfactory nerves.

Smell - Nose

Taste - Tounge


Touch - Skin

Outer EarEar Canal: Did you know a tube that runs from the outer ear to the middle ear that sound vibrations travel down.Pinna: Did you know this part is where people can see in. Its where people pierce earrings and what your friend whispers into when its time for a secret. Also it collects sound waves.Middle EarTympanum (eardrum): Did you know a membrane of the middle ear that vibrates in response to sound waves the tympanic membrane.Malleus (hammer): Did you know a small bone in the middle ear that transmits vibrations of the eardrum to the incus.Incus (anvil): Did you know a small anvil-shaped bone in the middle ear transmits vibrations between the malleus and stapes.Stapes (stirrup): Did you know a small stirrup-shaped bone in the middle ear transmits vibrations from the incus to the inner ear.Inner EarCochlea: Did you know it converts vibrations into nerve signals. Also inside it there are tiny cells, tiny hairs and liquid.Acoustic nerve: Did you know the eighth cranial nerve helps with your hearing, balance, and head position.Organs of balance (semi-circular canals): Did you know there are three tubes that help maintain balance. There are also tiny hairs and liquid. The liquid moves with your head. And it moves tiny hairs which send nerve messages to your brain.Eustachian tube: Did you know this part connects to nose drains and balances pressure in the middle ear.
