    Bove, Geoffrey M. and Michael A. Moskowitz. Primary Afferent Neurons Innervating Guinea Pig Dura. J. Neurophysiol. –, We made recordings from filaments of guinea pig nasociliary nerve to study response properties of afferent axons innervating the anterior superior sagittal sinus and surrounding dura by:   The key difference between afferent and efferent neuron is that the afferent neurons carry nerve impulses from the sensory organs to the central nervous system while the efferent neurons carry nerve impulses from the central nervous system to the muscles.. The nervous system is the director of all body activities. Its major functions include communication among the body parts and controlling.

    afferent neuron: A neuron that conducts sensory impulses toward the brain or spinal cord. Synonym: sensory neuron See also: neuron. Group C nerve fibers are one of three classes of nerve fiber in the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). The C group fibers are unmyelinated and have a small diameter and low conduction velocity, whereas Groups A and B are myelinated. Group C fibers include postganglionic fibers in the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and nerve fibers at the dorsal roots (IV fiber).Function: nerve fiber.

Linked end-to-end in a unidirectional chain, these cells conduct an electrical signal known as a nerve impulse from receptors in the body along the nerve toward the central nervous system: the spinal cord and the nervous system’s most basic unit, each afferent neuron.

Members of the Anatomical Society as well as non-member researchers were invited to join a circle of specialists to discuss the topiC of primary afferents. Definition. Primary afferents are sensory neurons (axons or nerve fibers) in the peripheral nervous system that transduce information about mechanical, thermal, and chemical states of the body and transmit it to sites in the central nervous system.

Those that innervate the trunk and limbs have their cell bodies in dorsal root ganglia. R.E.C. wishes to acknowledge the many things he learned about primary afferent neurons from conversations with Dr S.

Lawson. He also thanks Lyn Shilling for her assistance with the typing. WDW thanks Dr Nada Lawand for her critical reading of parts of the manuscript, Rosaline Leigh for help with the manuscript, and Griselda Gonzales for Cited by: describes the earlier literature concerning primary afferent input to and projections from the dorsal horn, and then summarises recent findings on the expression of NK1 receptors by projection neurones and synaptic inputs to these cells.

Primary afferent nociceptors are specialized free nerve endings of primary afferent nerves (A-delta and C fibres). They are generally the first structures to be involved in the nociceptive process and are located in various body tissues including skin, muscle, connective tissue, blood vessels and thoracic and abdominal viscera.

Parallel to primary. Spinal primary afferent neurons that innervate viscera have multiple functions (afferent, efferent and trophic functions) [4] and contain a diverse assortment of neuropeptides including calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), substance P, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP) [5].

Opioid receptors are synthesized in the dorsal root gangl22,53,55 and their expression can be modulated by inflammation in the vicinity of peripheral primary afferent neuron terminals. 12,13 We observed a moderate up-regulation of MOR and down-regulation of DOR and KOR in dorsal root ganglion 13 while levels of μ-receptor mRNA were not Cited by: Just outside the spinal cord, thousands of afferent neuronal cell bodies are aggregated in a swelling in the dorsal root known as the dorsal root ganglion.

All of the axons in the dorsal root, which contains afferent nerve fibers, are used in the transduction of somatosensory information.

Somatosensory receptors include senses such as pain, touch, temperature, itch, and : Nervous system.

They are pseudo-unipolar in architecture with distal and proximal projections arising from their cell bodies located in dorsal root and other sensory (e.g., trigeminal) ganglia.

The information about touch and pain is transmitted to the spinal cord and brain by primary afferent axons - these are the nerve fibers connected to the different types of receptors in the skin, muscle and internal organs. These primary afferent axons come in different diameters and can be divided into different groups based on their size.observations imply that primary afferent neuron s whose cell bodies reside in the TG express receptors for DA of the D 2 subtype, although these re ceptors do not function as.Both primary afferent excitability and subsequent nociceptive transmission within the dorsal horn were increased in Cntnap2 −/− mice.
