The sensory system

Post by ChrisWolf » Sun May 04, 2008 1:53 pm

Good day,

Can somebody help me pls with these questions? I started to learn about the sensory sistem(and the nervous system/brain), but some books give different informations:

1. Are the Merkel cells located only in the stratum germinativum of the epidermis?
2. Are the Meissner corpuscles located only in the dermis?
3. Are the Merkel cells and the Meissner corpuscles associated both with the same sense of touch, and the Pacinian corpuscles with the strong pressure touch ?
4. Is the Brodmann area 28 related to the olfactory system?
5. Is the Brodmann area 43 the only gustatory cortical area?
6. In which part of the brain do stem cells exist? The hypocampus?
7. Is the reticulospinal tract located only in the lateral funiculus? Or in the lateral and anterior funiculus?
8. Which cranial nerve innervates the Ramsay-Hunt zone? The fifth or the seventh?

Thank you
