Cutaneous receptors represent the peripheral or dendritic endings of the spinal or cranial ganglion cells. These receptors are excited by mechanical, thermal or noxious stimuli. Stimulation of them is then transmitted to the brain where the quality of these modalities and their location of origin are perceived.

The trigeminal system innervates the head and the spinal system transmits information concerning the body surface and extremities.

The upper limit appears to be around 20 kHz but birds tend to hear best between 3–10 kHz. There are a few birds that are able to hear infrasound, as can elephants. The process of hearing depends on the anatomy and physiology of the ear and its processing in the central nervous system. In general, the airborne sound waves enter the external acoustic meatus causing movement of the tympanic membrane. The oscillations of this membrane set up a wave motion of endolymph by movement of its single ossicle, the columella.
