The of light. 3 Classification of sensory receptors There are two ways of classifymg sensory receptors. Therearesix basic types of sensory receptor in this classification: chemoreceptors, thermoreceptors,mechanoreceptors,photoreceptors,magnetoreceptors, electroreceptors. ) The second means by which sensory receptors may be classified is by their location.

Therefore, the only places thatthe required ion movements may occur are at the nonmyelinated nodes of Ranvier and, thus, the action potential appears to jump from onenode to the next down the length of the axon. In this way, the velocitywith which the action potentialis transmitted down the length of the axon increases. A simple analogy would be walking a certain distance in less time by taking large strides as opposed to small steps. 2 the ionic basis of the action potential was described. It was stated that an action potential will only be generated when the membrane potential reaches a certain threshold.

The first step in the process is a change in the ionic permeability of the membrane of the sensory receptor, thus altering its ionic conductance.
