The infrared receptor of Melanophila acuminata De Geer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae): ultrastructural study of a unique insect thermoreceptor
and its possible descent from a hair mechanoreceptor.
Available in cool caplets, geltabs, and gelcaps, Allergy Complete Multisymptom additionally features a coating of CoolBurst, which uses CoolTek technology to stimulate thermoreceptors
in the mouth and throat to create a cooling sensation.
The feeling of increased nasal patency may be mediated by thermoreceptors
in the nasal vestibule, according to investigators Dr.
The mechanoreceptors respond to indentations of the skin; the thermoreceptors
to specific temperatures and changes in temperature; and the nociceptors to intense pressure or high heat.
The hypothesis that thermoreceptors
may demonstrate faster adaptations to persistent pain than mechanoreceptors is supported by evidence of thermal allodynia within 1 day of experimentally induced injury in non-primate animals, whereas mechanical allodynia either developed gradually up to 30 days after injury or was not present [22, 23].
The somatic nervous system collects sensory data from skin thermoreceptors
as well as from the internal organs through the blood stream, evaluates this data, and yields a thermal comfort response after processing the data based on the psychological state.
The pulsing airflow increased the cooling effectiveness of the airflow by preventing the acclimatization of the thermoreceptors
. Subjects expressed satisfaction with the airflow in all metabolic and temperature conditions.
elegans, it has been shown, by ablating one of the pair of amphidial chemoreceptors or thermoreceptors
, that signals from lateral receptors may be pooled for nematode chemotaxis or thermotaxis (Bargmann and Horvitz, 1991; Bargmann et al., 1993; Mori and Ohshima, 1995).
