1

what is the difference between palpation and perception?

palpation: efferent, active state, concentration and focus, pressure, motion testing, looking for something (examples: pulse, skin temperature)
perception: afferent, receptive state, paying attention, seeing motion, being open to what is present (examples: joint motion, tension)

2

acute vs. chronic TART changes: temp, moisture, texture, edema

acute: hotter, rougher, increased moisture, rigid, board like texture, tender, edema, venous congestion of vessels
chronic: usually cooler, thin and smooth texture, dry, ropy, stringy texture, no edema

3

fascia definition and functions

fascia is a connective tissue
functions are supportive/stabilizing, such as for neurovascular bundles, lymphatics, muscles and organs

4

TART abbreviation

Tissue Texture changes
Asymmetry
Restriction of motion
Tenderness

5

palpatory receceptors (whether they can fatigue, which parts of the body are good for light touch and gauging temperature)

fingers are one of the most sensitive parts of our body

6

remapping process

areas of the brain that correspond to the hands can be remapped or expanded, depending on what is used and how often
hippocampus (for long-term memories and mental maps) grows from constant use

7

interpretation of results from skin drag test

acute: increased drag (slow)
chronic: decreased drag (fast)

8

main cellular component of fascia and what they do

fibroblasts, these produce collagen
