Question 1: Answer 3

Where is the location of receptive field?

Answer Chosen was: The cell in the central nervous system.

This answer is incorrect because the cell does not directly receive any sensory stimulation but is dependent upon other part of the nervous system conveying the information to the brain.(Coren, Ward, & Enns, 1994).
