Sensory organs are responsible for helping individuals understand their environment. In fact, these organs gather information related to smell, taste, sound, and hearing. This week will focus primarily on how sense organs, associated with the peripheral nervous system, works to integrate and deliver information.
The overall learning objective for Week 10 in the laboratory course is to identify and describe sensory organs associated with the nervous system discussed in Week 8. To successfully complete this assignment, first read the following exercises from the Laboratory Manual: Exercise 23: Anatomy of the Visual System and Exercise 25: Special Senses: Hearing and Equilibrium.
