Week 7: Central nervous system (CNS)
Recall from the chapter on the central nervous system (CNS) that the general senses detect such stimuli as touch, pain, and temperature. General senses refer to the fact that these receptors are relatively simple and located throughout the body in both the skin and internal organs. The special senses, in contrast, are so named because they convey a specific type of information from specialized sensory organs in discrete locations of the head. For this assignment you will;
Imagine you are driving or biking on a high-traffic road and you are approaching an intersection with a four-way stop and railroad train track. Additionally, there are three cars in the other lanes of the intersection and visibility is decreased because of foggy weather conditions.
Describe what special senses you will use to make the determination to safely proceed into the intersection.
Then, in a detailed summary, explain the pathways for each of the special senses involved.
Describe the pathways for the special senses not involved in this case and explain why they are not used.
Describe how the brain interprets information from each of those special senses.
Describe how the brain sends messages to the body to react to information from these special senses.
This PowerPoint® (Microsoft Office) or Impress® (Open Office) presentation should be a minimum of 20 slides, including a title and reference slide, recorded audio and be sure to include a reference slide. You will describe what special senses you will use to make the determination to safely proceed into the intersection.
Your submission should include a minimum of 5 peer-reviewed sources to support any of your perspective. Please review the module’s Signature Assignment Rubric before starting this assignment to ensure that you are meeting all the essential requirements. This presentation is worth 300 points for quality content and presentation.

IMPORTANT NOTES THAT WILL GUIDE YOU WHEN WRITING THIS ASSIGNMENT
Imagine you are driving or biking on a high-traffic road and you are approaching an intersection with a four-way stop and railroad train track. Additionally, there are three cars in the other lanes of the intersection and visibility is decreased because of foggy weather conditions. Describe what special senses you will use to make the determination to safely proceed into the intersection.
When you are driving or biking on a high-traffic road, you will need some special senses to make sure that you are safe. These special senses include vision, hearing, touch and smell. A driver’s eyes are most important when looking for traffic lights; drivers who have good hearing can hear approaching vehicles from a distance and warn others about faster-moving vehicles; drivers who have keen third-eye skills can tell at a glance whether anyone’s coming up behind them through the rearview mirror; touch is very important in preventing accidents because when you feel something unusual before it happens, it helps prevent an accident from occurring
You might use your special senses of vision, hearing and touch to detect hazards on the road. The most important sense is vision. If you have good vision then you can see what’s happening in front of you at all times without having to turn your head or look down at the road. Hearing is also very important because it allows us to detect sounds around us such as vehicles approaching from behind us or an approaching train whistle making our hair stand up on end!
Touching a hazard on the road could be dangerous so we should never assume that something feels normal until we’ve verified its true nature with our hands (we wouldn’t want anyone thinking they were safe when they weren’t!). Smelling things can also be helpful when determining if there are hidden dangers, such as explosives being used during an attack so make sure not only do these two senses work together but also complement each other’s abilities by making sure both parties have accurate information about what exactly needs investigating further.”
When making a decision to proceed through an intersection, you should use your eyes. The first thing that drivers look for when they are approaching an intersection is traffic lights. If there are no traffic lights and the road ahead looks clear, it’s safe to proceed into the intersection. However, if there are no traffic lights or other cars on either side of you and there is foggy weather conditions (low visibility), then it may not be safe for you to enter into that intersection at this time because you will have less than ideal visibility for being able to see what is ahead of yourself or behind yourself during your trip through town!
Drivers who have good hearing can hear approaching vehicles from a distance and warn others about faster-moving vehicles. Hearing is important for warning others about faster-moving vehicles. Drivers who have good hearing can hear approaching vehicles from a distance and warn others about faster-moving vehicles. This can help you avoid accidents, collisions, and being hit by a car or train.
In addition to using your eyesight, you may want to use your sense of hearing in order to determine when it’s safe to proceed through an intersection with multiple lanes of traffic on different roads (or even just one lane). If there isn’t enough time for all the cars in each lane to move safely before reaching the intersection—or if there isn’t enough space between them—you should slow down until everyone has cleared their path through safely so that no accidents occur due to increased speed around curves or turns in roadways where visibility might be limited due foggy weather conditions such as when driving through rain clouds during winter months.”
Drivers who have keen third-eye skills can tell at a glance whether anyone’s coming up behind them through the rearview mirror.
Drivers who have keen third-eye skills can tell at a glance whether anyone’s coming up behind them through the rearview mirror. They can see the reflection of other cars in their rearview mirror, and they can tell if someone is coming up behind them. This allows drivers to be more cautious when approaching intersections without traffic signals because they know there may be someone who is following them.
Touch is very important in preventing accidents because when you feel something unusual before it happens, it helps prevent an accident from occurring.
Touching the brakes or steering wheel helps reduce the risk of having a crash. Touching your brakes will help reduce your speed and prevent you from hitting another vehicle or object on the road that could cause damage or injury to yourself or others around you. Touching your steering wheel will make sure that if there is an emergency situation that requires immediate action, such as being side swiped by another vehicle, then this can be done without having to worry about losing control of your vehicle due to not having enough time to react properly with using only one hand while holding onto something else (like what would happen if someone breaks into their house through their front door while they are trying desperately not let them get away).
Smell is especially important when driving because it helps alert drivers to possible hidden dangers on the road like road debris or oil spills that could be a hazard if they are not cleaned up quickly enough.
Smell has been proven to help people detect odors at distances of up to 15 feet away, which is why many restaurants have functional kitchens but poor dining rooms smell so bad. People can also smell cancer in their saliva, which makes this condition all the more serious when it comes to preventing symptoms from being noticed earlier than later.
I hope that you now have a better understanding of how sensory information can help us while driving. It’s important to keep in mind that these special sense are not just for fun, they’re also an important part of our everyday lives as drivers.
