Thus, the lower motor neurons are the "final common pathway" to coordinate voluntary movement because the lower motor neurons receive information from both UMNs and sensory neurons
from the periphery.
When we presented two different odours to the olfactory sensory neurons
of younger people they responded to one or the other.
Electrophysiologically, axonal nerve damage of the sensory neurons
is frequently shown, but additionally, demyelination may be present (6).
The ataxia of Friedreich's ataxia results from the degeneration of nerve tissue in the spinal cord, in particular sensory neurons
essential for directing muscle movement of the arms and legs.
This might affect sensory neurons
in the dura, the thin envelop of tissue that surrounds the brain, and may be the source of headaches.
of Florence, Italy) explains in her introduction, the 22 chapters of this book "have evolved around the concept that the first sensory synapse between the central terminals of primary sensory neurons
and dorsal horn neurons in the spinal cord is plastic and modifiable" by neuronal and non-neuronal regulators, promising the identification of new targets for the treatment of chronic pain.
Synaptic coupling between peripheral sensory neurons
is uncommon and especially rare among chemosensory afferents (Foelix 1975; Hayes & Barber 1982).
, for example, carry messages from your eyes, ears and other sensory organs to your brain.
Collectively, these events profoundly affect the excitability and functional properties of spinal sensory neurons
and ultimately affect evoked and resting sensibilities.
Here we show that cultured sensory neurons
and intact sensory nerve fibres from TRPM8-deficient mice exhibit profoundly diminished responses to cold.
The most common cause of idiopathic facial paralysis (Bell palsy) is now believed to be the reactivation of a latent neurotrophic virus (herpesvirus family) in the sensory neurons
of the facial nerve.
The ion channel protein called TRPA1 is present on sensory neurons
, found in most body tissues.
