Was it more difficult to catch the ruler using one of the senses as compared to the other? Explain.
How could you use only the sense of smell to catch the ruler?
How could you use only the sense of taste to catch the ruler?
Explain how your senses, nerves, brain, and muscles in your fingers helped you to catch the ruler for one of the senses explored. Use pages 17-23 of your student reference book to help you.
How did your body respond when the ball of paper was thrown at you?
How would this reflex protect your eyes if the transparency had not been there?
Do you think the nervous system responded to catching the ruler and blinking in the same way? Why or why not? Were the senses used in both? Were muscles used in both? Did you have to think about both actions?
Yes because two out of three of them I couldn't see when he(My partner.) dropped the ruler and it seemed easier to see the ruler and catch it than get a signal before he dropped it.
If that person dropping the ruler released some sort of strong scent immediately before they dropped it.
If the person dropping the ruler put something with a very distinct taste in your mouth before immediately before they dropped the ruler.
My nerves told my brain to tell my hands to close when I felt/heard a certain command or touch.
I flinched and blinked at the same time.
I would have moved and blinked so my eyes didn't get hit.
No because me flinching/blinking was a natural reaction but I had to tell myself to catch the ruler. My muscles helped me to move in both activities.
