Examples of Afferents

Sentences

18 examples:

These afferents also activate postsynaptic NR2B-containing NMDA receptors, which are essential for the neurons' proper cortical integration.
(Nature Neuroscience, )

Epidermal Merkel cells display features of sensory receptor cells and make ‘synapse-like’ contacts with slowly adapting type I (SAI) afferents.
(Nature, )

Optogenetic approaches in intact skin show that Merkel cells are both necessary and sufficient for sustained action-potential firing in tactile afferents.
(Nature, )

Furthermore, our data present evidence for a two-receptor-site model, in which both Merkel cells and innervating afferents act together as mechanosensors.
(Nature, )

Familiarity signaling in the interpeduncular nucleus is bidirectionally modulated by habenula and ventral tegmental area afferents to control novelty preference.
(Nature Neuroscience, )

Recordings from touch-dome afferents lacking Merkel cells demonstrate that Merkel cells confer high-frequency responses to dynamic stimuli and enable sustained firing.
(Nature, )

Nature Reviews Neuroscience18, 2030 (2017)In Box 1 and on page 26 of this article, in the section Activity-dependent 'switches', Aβ afferents were incorrectly defined.
(Nature Reviews Neuroscience, )

Here, Chagnaud et al . show that, in Xenopus tadpoles, shared efferent neural pathways to the inner ear and lateral line adjust the sensitivity of sensory afferents during locomotor activity.
(Nature Communications, )

In the mouse somatosensory system, electrophysiology, imaging and optogenetic experiments reveal a progression of choice-related activity as touch signals flow from primary afferents to cortex.
(Nature Neuroscience, )

One specialized set of spinal GABAergic interneurons forms axo–axonic contacts with the central terminals of sensory afferents, exerting presynaptic inhibitory control over sensory–motor transmission.
(Nature, )

Touch submodalities, such as flutter and pressure, are mediated by somatosensory afferents whose terminal specializations extract tactile features and encode them as action potential trains with unique activity patterns.
(Nature, )

Moreover, our results indicate a division of labour in the Merkel cell–neurite complex: Merkel cells signal static stimuli, such as pressure, whereas sensory afferents transduce dynamic stimuli, such as moving gratings.
(Nature, )

Synapse-like junctions are observed between Merkel cells and associated afferents, and yet it is unclear whether Merkel cells are inherently mechanosensitive or whether they can rapidly transmit such information to the neighbouring nerve.
(Nature, )

The model that cutaneous specializations are merely passive has been recently challenged because epidermal cells express sensory ion channels and neurotransmitters; however, direct evidence that epidermal cells excite tactile afferents is lacking.
(Nature, )

Consistently, we found that PVT neurons preferentially innervate SOM+ neurons in the CeL, and stimulation of PVT afferents facilitated SOM+ neuron activity and promoted intra-CeL inhibition, two processes that are critical for fear learning and expression.
(Nature, )

Here, Bonin and De Koninck find that hyperalgesia can be reversed by combining reactivation of peripheral afferents with spinal administration of a protein synthesis inhibitor, thereby identifying a spinal analogue of memory re-consolidation that enables erasing pain hypersensitivity.
(Nature Neuroscience, )

The authors show how dopamine neurons operate in the context of cholinergic transmission and find that the afferents originating from two functionally distinct (motor and limbic) cholinergic nuclei of the brainstem selectively modulate subsets of neurons in the ventral tegmental area.
(Nature Neuroscience, )

Our results reveal fine selectivity in the taste preference of ganglion neurons; demonstrate a strong match between TRCs in the tongue and the principal neural afferents relaying taste information to the brain; and expose the highly specific transfer of taste information between taste cells and the central nervous system.
(Nature, )
