Function of the 7 sensory functions.
The teaching is planned with the objective of preparing the individual student to be able to offer an adequate therapeutic treatment, to remedy loss or impaired function of the 7 sensory functions. The course also includes treatment protocol to be able to guide clients to self-treatment.
The senses enable us to communicate with the outside world and survive.
The senses are crucial to our ability to move around the world and perceive what is going on around us.
Module 1: A deeper understanding of how the sense of smell, taste and hearing function in the nervous and brain, as well as how different situations such as infection and damage, can affect the human senses is taught.
Module 1: Learn about how smells, tastes and the sense of hearing work and about treatment methods:
The sense of smell.
The nerves from the nose run directly to a primitive area of the brain called the limbic system. It has to do with basic emotions like anxiety, sexual drive and hunger as well as memory. This is why scents often trigger memories and strong emotions to a greater degree than other sensory impressions.
The sens of taste.
buds on the tongue contain receptors that respond to the chemical molecules in food. It's about. 10,000 taste buds, each with about 1,000 receptors. In principle, we can thus recognize ten billion different taste impressions. In reality, man is not very good at distinguishing between different tastes, and the sense of taste is very much dependent on the sense of smell.
The sens of hearing.
Hearing occurs when the cilia of the ear convert pressure waves in the air into sounds. The task of the ear and the brain is to convert the size and frequency of the waves- frequency- to different volumes and tones and at the same time calculate where the sound comes from. The location of the sound source is calculated on the basis of the time difference in the arrival of the sound to the ears.
Module 2:A deeper understanding is taught of how the sense of sight, feeling, body and balance function nerve and brain, as well as how different situations such as infection and injury can affect these senses.
Our eye has a camera-like structure in which the pupil controls the amount of light entering the eye and the lens focuses the light on the retina at the back of the eye. The retina contains over 100 million light-sensitive receptors and six million receptors that pick up red, blue and green light that together create all the colors we know.
The sense of touch.
The sense sends information to the brain about what is in immediate contact with the body, ie. pressure, stretch and movement as well as temperature and pain effect. This is done through receptors that are located everywhere in the skin- especially on the fingers, on the feet and in the face and a little less in the internal organs. The sense of touch helps us to avoid injuries and adapt, for example, our clothing to the temperature around us.
The body sense.
Sensory impressions from muscles and joints constantly keep the brain informed about the location of the various parts of the body. Therefore, we always know where feet are located and whether the mouth is open or closed.
The balance sense. Tells us if we are walking, sitting, head down or about to fall.
Small, fluid-filled channels in the archways of the ear record the movements and position of the head in relation to gravity and changes in the pace of movement.
If the sense of balance does not work optimally, you become dizzy and nauseous.
