• 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)
  • system
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Nervous system: pupillary defect, exaggerated hippus, dizziness or lightheadedness. (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)
  • degeneration
  • Previous reports have indicated that axonal trafficking may play an important role in sensory neuron degeneration underlying HSN. (jneurosci.org)
  • We thus provide evidence that mutations in cytoplasmic dynein lead to sensory neuron degeneration in mice. (jneurosci.org)
