• vessels
  • The former is found near the inferior border of the upper rib of an ICS and the latter follows the superior border of the lower rib (note that the intercostal vessels also branch in the same pattern. (usra.ca)
  • From the costal angle onwards, the main ICNs and vessels, grouped as a neurovascular bundle, are arranged in the vein, artery and nerve (VAN) orientation from superior to inferior. (usra.ca)
  • parietal pleura
  • This enables them to control the contraction of muscles, as well as provide specific sensory information regarding the skin and parietal pleura. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • To ensure complete sensory blockade, it is therefore important to anesthetize the intercostal nerves at or posterior to the posterior axillary line. (usra.ca)
  • CPGs have been shown to produce rhythmic outputs resembling normal "rhythmic motor pattern production" even in isolation from motor and sensory feedback from limbs and other muscle targets. (wikipedia.org)
  • Enhanced sensory recovery after median nerve repair using cortical audio-tactile interaction. (blogspot.com)
  • The cough reflex has both sensory (afferent) mainly via the vagus nerve and motor (efferent) components. (wikipedia.org)
  • This signal may be in the form of an action potential if the chemoreceptor is a neuron (nerve cell), or in the form of a neurotransmitter that can activate a nearby nerve fiber if the chemosensor is a specialized sensory receptor cell, such as the taste receptor in a taste bud or in an internal peripheral chemoreceptor such as the carotid body (ex, in chemotherapy). (wikipedia.org)
  • Because each spinal nerve carries both sensory and motor information, spinal nerves are referred to as "mixed nerves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Contraction
  • Contraction of this muscle aids in exertional expiration by decreasing the transverse diameter of the thoracic cage. (wikipedia.org)
  • enervation subsequently triggers oxytocin release, which, when in the peripheral bloodstream, causes myoepithelial cell contraction and lactation: this is an example of a non-nerve-innervation muscular reflex. (wikipedia.org)
  • Without a stable spine, one aided by proper contraction of the TVA, the nervous system fails to recruit the muscles in the extremities efficiently, and functional movements cannot be properly performed. (wikipedia.org)
  • rectus
  • The result is stretching and thinning of these structures and diastasis of the rectus muscle. (medscape.com)
  • The most significant area of the defect is around and below the umbilicus, where excess skin over a diastasis of the rectus muscles is most apparent. (medscape.com)
