• afferent
  • It has been reported that the disruption of knee extension is observed in both ACL-injured and contralateral limbs of patients having ACL injury and is suggested to be attributed to the lack of afferent feedback from mechanoreceptors through the [gamma] loop (Konishi et al.

  • hairy skin
  • There are also mechanoreceptors in hairy skin, and the hair cells in thoreceptors of primates like rhesus monkeys and other mammals are similar to those of humans and also studied even in early 20th century anatomically and neurophysiologically. (wikipedia.org)
  • rises
  • With its more sustained movement at the end of range will activate the static, slow adapting, Type I mechanoreceptors, whose resting discharge rises in proportion to the degree of change in joint capsule tension. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • describe an approach to simulate the mechanoreceptors of human skin, using pressure-sensitive foils and printed ring oscillators (see the Perspective by Anikeeva and Koppes). (sciencemag.org)
  • We present a power-efficient skin-inspired mechanoreceptor with a flexible organic transistor circuit that transduces pressure into digital frequency signals directly. (sciencemag.org)
  • different
  • They are generally called Grade I through Grade V. The different grades of mobilization are believed to produce selective activation of different mechanoreceptors in the joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • input
  • Juvenile lobsters reared during this critical period with a substratum that could not be grasped or with reduced input from predominantly internal mechanoreceptors (proprioceptors) (achieved by cutting the dactyl and its chordotonal organ or by tenotomizing the claw opener or closer muscles) failed to develop a crusher claw and hence remained bilaterally symmetrical: they developed paired cutter claws.
