• nerve fibers
  • Nociceptive pain is caused by stimulation of sensory nerve fibers that respond to stimuli approaching or exceeding harmful intensity (nociceptors), and may be classified according to the mode of noxious stimulation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Autonomic nerve fibers form large collections in the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis outside the spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • WNK1
  • It is a single-exon ORF, and a nervous system-specific exon of the WNK1 gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • HSN2 is as an alternatively spliced exon of WNK1 and this selectively occurs in nervous tissues, resulting in WNK1/HSN2 nervous system isoforms. (wikipedia.org)

  • 2004). A novel sagittal slice explant technique for time-lapse imaging of the formation of the chick peripheral nervous system. (montana.edu)
  • The autonomic nervous system controls bodily functions such as swallowing and digestion, regulation of blood pressure and body temperature and the body's response to stress. (kveller.com)
  • There are two major central pathways for pain and temperature sensation: the spinothalamic tract, which is the major ascending pathway, and the trigerminal pain and temperature system, which carries the sensory information from the face to the brain. (wikispaces.net)
  • An analgesic should have the greatest pain-relieving effect possible, without impairing the awareness, sensory perception and other functions of the central nervous system (it should not have any narcotic effects). (grunenthal.com)
  • In some affected people, the condition may also cause mild abnormalities of the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary body functions such as heart rate, digestion, and breathing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nervous system: pupillary defect, exaggerated hippus, dizziness or lightheadedness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Abnormal protein buildup in organs (amyloidosis), which affects the organs and the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Autonomic neuropathy may also be caused by an abnormal attack by the immune system that occurs as a result of some cancers (paraneoplastic syndrome). (wikipedia.org)
  • and sometimes to other parts of the body where it may affect the autonomic nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and ⁄ or spinal cord is the best modality for evaluation when the lesion is suspected to be localized to the central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Opioids refers to a specific group of analgesics - including morphine, codeine, and opium - that act on opioid receptors, which are located mainly in the central nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • The US Food and Drug Administration's Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee rejected the drug in June 2012, in a 13-4 vote. (wikipedia.org)
  • axonal
  • Previous reports have indicated that axonal trafficking may play an important role in sensory neuron degeneration underlying HSN. (jneurosci.org)
