• Glands
  • postganglionic sympathetic fibers to the sweat glands, piloerectile muscles of the body hairs, and the skeletal muscle arterioles do not use adrenaline/noradrenaline. (wikipedia.org)
  • Postganglionic parasympathetic fibers to the oral mucosa and the submandibular and sublingual salivary glands.They are secretomotor to these glands. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are 800 to 1,000 minor salivary glands located throughout the oral cavity within the submucosa of the oral mucosa in the tissue of the buccal, labial, and lingual mucosa, the soft palate, the lateral parts of the hard palate, and the floor of the mouth or between muscle fibers of the tongue.

  • dorsal root gan
  • Compression of the dorsal root ganglion by a mechanical stimulus lowers the voltage threshold needed to evoke a response and causes action potentials to be fired. (omicsgroup.org)
  • organs
  • Parasympathetic ganglia are located in or near the effector organs giving them long preganglionic fibers and short postganglionic fiber. (varsitytutors.com)
  • length in long or shortened positions Type II - detect absolute length efferent fiber - Gamma extrafusal myofibers - Alpha spindle functions stretch reflex reciprocal inhibition Tendon organ: connective tissue capsule afferent fiber function - monitors muscle tension (non-reciprocal inhibition) Joint kinesthetic receptors intracapsular (End Organs of Ruffini) - pressure extracapsular (Pacinian) - acceleration/deceleration articular ligaments (similar to tendon organ) - tension.
