Hi,

When a mouse smells cheese, is that the respiratory or the sensory organ taking action.

Just a note: the answer is either one of them; the question only asked me for ONE.

Thanks in advance.

sensory most probably because he is smelling,actually sensing with the nose.... not respiring that is oxidising glucose.... still not very sure. whats the answer btw?

yea it must be sensory as respiratory is only breathing in and this is smelling and the mouse knows it is cheese because there's information going into its brain therefore sensory neurons are involved

Sensory. Respiratory has nothing to do with it tbh.

Well the respiratory system is keeping the mouse alive so, y'know, there's that!

Obviously the answer is sensory!

Thanks a lot. This wasn't a question I know the answer of so I posted it here, as this was a Q in the mock test I was doing.
