How to use Nerve-fibers in a sentence
Terminal nerve fibers release acetylcholine into the neuromuscular junction, which then binds to acetylcholine receptors on muscle cells.
Local anesthetic agents may be administered intradermally or subcutaneously to block impulse conduction in local nerve fibers.
The two hemispheres communicate via dense bundles of nerve fibers called the corpus callosum.
This antibody, also called an immunoglobulin, may damage the nerve fibers.
The optic nerve is made up of thousands of nerve fibers.Advertisement
Despite the large number of the optic nerve fibers their capacity of plasticity for to achieve recovery is rather limited.
The autonomic nerve fibers which radiate from the central nervous system to the ganglia of the autonomic nervous system are called preganglionic nerves.
Finally the motor nerve fibers may be affected on their own, producing a pure motor neuropathy.
The impulses travel to the body systems through electrical impulses transferred through nerve fibers.
A more severe injury may involve a complete disruption of the nerve, in which the nerve fibers around the injury become disorganized, all nerve function is lost, and scarring prevents the nerve from healing.Advertisement
Both closed and penetrating head injuries can cause swirling movements throughout the brain, tearing nerve fibers and causing widespread bleeding or a blood clot in or around the brain.
Optic nerve-A bundle of nerve fibers that carries visual messages from the retina in the form of electrical signals to the brain.
In secondary encephalitis, symptoms usually begin five to ten days after the onset of the disease itself and are related to the breakdown of the myelin sheath that covers nerve fibers.
From the stylomastoid foramen, the nerve enters the parotid gland and divides into an estimated 7,000 nerve fibers that control a wide range of facial and neck activity.
It contains nerve cells, supporting cells, and long nerve fibers (axons) that connect to the brain and carry signals downward from the brain along descending pathways and upward to the brain along ascending pathways.Advertisement
Hirschsprung's disease, also known as congenital megacolon or aganglionic megacolon, is an abnormality in which certain nerve fibers are absent in segments of the bowel, resulting in severe bowel obstruction.
A biopsy of rectal tissue will reveal the absence of the nerve fibers.
A University of Michigan study found that exposure to the measles virus could interfere with the proper development of myelin, a protein found in the area that protects the nerve fibers in the brain.
When myelin fails to develop properly, the nerve fibers do not work correctly and brain abnormalities such as autism symptoms may occur.
