In conclusion, this study shows that both the central and peripheral nervous systems may be affected in SLE patients, even without any clinical neurological manifestations.
GLU appears to be involved in both afferent and efferent events in the Lymnaea peripheral nervous system
The article also suggests how sensitisation of the peripheral nervous system may take place, and that this should be a consideration in the clinical setting for the purposes of differential diagnosis.
These regions play a critical role in receiving sensory information from the peripheral nervous system and the spinal cord, and relaying messages throughout the brain that control thinking, learning, movement, and other behaviors.
The progressive muscle weakness that accompanies this disease results from the involvement of the motor neurons of the peripheral nervous system. However, spinal and cranial nerves, as well as sensory neurons, are often involved.
This system is called the peripheral nervous system. Biologists have revealed that there is a fluid called the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that flows within and around the brain and spinal cord and nourishes, protects, and controls electrolytes.
The first electrophysiologic study of the peripheral nervous system in neonates and young children whose mothers drank alcohol heavily during pregnancy found slower ulnar motor nerve velocity and smaller proximal and distal amplitude in 17 children exposed to more than 2 ounces of alcohol per day in utero, compared with 13 children whose mothers did not drink during pregnancy (J.
"Peripheral nervous system axons--the part of the nerve cell that carries the impulses--normally have a connective tissue sheath of myelin guide their growth, and without that guidance, they aren't able to grow productively."
SSeCKS (src suppressed C kinase substrate) is a proposed substrate for protein kinase C that has been localized in both the central and peripheral nervous system. We previously demonstrated SSeCKS immunolabeling in primary afferent terminals in lamina II of the rat spinal cord as well as within approximately 40% of small-diameter primary sensory neuron perikarya.
In the developing Drosophila melanogaster Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), Sensory Organ Precursors (SOPs) are specified at stereotyped positions and in precise numbers in the wing disc.
A crucial part of this and many other studies involves the measurement of electroneural data from the peripheral nervous system. One challenge is that neural electrical data of interest often lasts for less than a thousandth of a second, making it very difficult to detect and measure.
