Human Interface Sensory Input
According to Site Peripheral Receptors
According to Function Motor and Sensory Fiber
Sensation detected on the surface of the body.
Sensory information of joint position, muscle contraction, and muscle tension.
Sensory information from internal organs.
Sensory information from tissue pressure receptors, bone information and some pain receptors.
Cold receptors, heat receptors.
Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide receptors in the aortic and carotid bodies.
aka Type II sensory fiber. Motor: Motoneuron for both extrafusal and intrafusal (muscle spindle) fibers. Sensory: Secondary afferents of muscle spindles, touch/pressure receptors, and Pacinian corpuscles.
Motor Only for intrafusal fibers.
aka Type III sensory fiber. Sensory Only termperature, pain, pressure, touch.
