Example sentences for: afferents

How can you use “afferents” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Cooper [ 9 ] recorded muscle spindle response to static displacements in cat soleus muscle and found sensitivities of 10 spikes/sec/mm for 1° spindles and 5 spikes/sec/mm for 2° afferents when the muscle was stretched in 1 mm increments to 4 mm displacement.

  • Matthews [ 10 ] described a frequency range for two 2° afferents to be approximately 45 - 185 spikes/sec with velocity changes of 1.2 mm/sec to 100 mm/sec to a final length change of 6 mm in the soleus muscle of the cat.

  • MX generated the null mutation, bred all the mice used for this study and generated the statistical data and the immunocytochemical data with MyoVII, AM conducted the tract tracing studies of cochlear afferents and helped with the histological analysis and assembly of image plates, UP carried out the in situ hybridization for neurotrophins and assembled the plates for these data, BF wrote the manuscript, carried out most of the neuronal tracing and immunocytochemistry for acetylated tubulin and data presentation.

  • These afferents were located throughout the intercostal muscles.

  • Discharge frequencies found for primary muscle spindles in the present study are also similar to those for 1° afferents in other muscles with intact γ-innervation [ 9 16 17 ] and without γ-innervation [ 18 19 20 ] . In these studies, the 1° muscle spindles were found to possess the greatest sensitivity to changes in velocity.
