Classically, sensory receptors are specialized cells which detect specific environmental disturbances and send out neural signals for the integration, control and/or regulation of effector organs. Recently, a special class of sensory receptors called sensori-hormonal cells which employ hormones as their means of flux of biological information has been proposed. These sensori-hormonal cells are capable of detecting and transducing environmental signals directly into the secretion of hormones… CONTINUE READING
