Example sentences for: afferents

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

  • 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.

  • However, as in the base, afferents and efferents extend sparingly to the outer hair cell region.

  • 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 location and numbers of intercostal muscle mechanoreceptors suggest that they mediate the transduction of chest wall contractile mechanics [ 1 2 3 ] . Intercostal muscle spindles have been identified histologically [ 3 ] . These afferents increase their discharge frequency during inspiration and decrease their activity during expiration [ 3 ] . Intercostal muscle mechanoreceptors enter the spinal cord through the thoracic dorsal roots [ 3 ] . These chest wall mechanoreceptors are responsible for segmental and intersegmental proprioceptive feedback from the intercostal muscles.

  • The dorsal horn contains the neural circuitry conveying nociceptive information, including pain and temperature, from the periphery by the primary afferents [ 1 2 3 ] . Nociceptive afferent fibers terminate predominately in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord.
