Example sentences for: afferents

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

  • The group II non-spindle muscle afferents have increased discharge rates with increasing fatigue, also contributing to the inhibitory effect.

  • This is consistent with the results of Von Euler & Peretti [ 2 ] , who found intercostal muscle spindles in the cat to be evenly distributed along the dorsal - ventral extent with a slight decrease in the numbers of afferents towards the more ventral aspects.

  • Intercostal afferents have been shown to alter inspiratory muscle motor activity [ 4 5 6 7 ] . The activity of respiratory muscle afferents provides essential muscle mechanical information during ventilation [ 3 ] . This is supported by previous reports that have shown these receptors to be sensitive to changes in muscle length and stretch velocity and are active during spontaneous breathing [ 1 2 3 8 ] .

  • These afferents transduce the intercostal muscle mechanical events into a neural code that projects to the central nervous system [ 22 ] via thoracic spinal dorsal roots.

  • The range of peak instantaneous frequencies for 1° afferents was 41 ± 3 spikes/sec at 0.5 μm/msec velocity to 221 ± 29 spikes/sec at 100 μm/msec velocity (Fig.
