A receptor is a nerve ending or a sensory organ that helps to receive and transmit information from various parts of the body to the brain. Receptors majorly help to filter information and impulses so that the body can properly respond to them via the Nervous system. Effectors, on the other hand are responsible for carrying out the body responses to the inputted information by the initial receptors. Effectors work in response to the nervous system.
