A bundle of fibers located outside the central nervous sytem that connect the brain and spinal cord with various parts of the body.
relay signals such as pain to and from your brain.
Bundles of fibers (outside the brain and spinal cord).
bundles of axons bound together.
Bundle of nerve fibers that carry information back and forth in the body, usually to and from the brain or spinal cord.
Bundles of fibers made up of nerve cells that carry messages between the brain, spinal cord and the rest of the body.
bundle of fibers (neurons) which connect the brain or spinal cord to the eyes, ears, muscles, glands, and other parts of the body. Nerves carry impulses, especially of sensation and motion.
Cord-like structures in the body that carry information and sensations (like heat, cold and pain) between the brain and other parts of the body.
The extensions which branch off of the brain and spinal cord and carry information to all parts of the body.
Fibers containing nerve cells that send messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
Long fibers or bundles of fibers that transmit messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
Fibers containing nerve cells that convey impulses from the central nervous system to other parts of the body.
Bundles of axons which transmit signals around the body. search for Nerves
Cancer of the nerves, which originate in the brain or spinal cord, are uncommon. It may occur close to the brain or spinal cord, which causes the symptoms, or can occur in nerves away from the brain or spinal cord (see soft tissue sarcomas, peripheral nerve sheath tumors). Treatment is with surgery or occasionally radiation.
Bundles of neuronal processes enclosed in connective tissue that carry signals to and from the central nervous system. PICTURE
Structures in the nervous system that conduct electrical impulses from the brain and spinal cord to muscles and other organs.
the nerves of the body can be divided into twelve pairs of cranial nerves, which arise from the brain and brainstem, 31-33 pairs of spinal nerves which arise from the spinal cord in segmental series (8 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar, 5 sacral and 1-3 coccygeal). The spinal nerves emerge from the intervertebral foramina which lie along side of adjacent vertebrae. The pass laterally into the neck or trunk. A typical spinal nerve is formed by the union of a dorsal root, which arises from the dorsal aspect of the spinal cord and a ventral root which arises from the ventral aspect of the spinal cord. The dorsal root consists of sensory (afferent) fibers and contains a swelling called the dorsal root
A bundle of fibers that uses electrical and chemical signals to transmit sensory and motor information from one body part to another..
Fibers that conduct impulses (messages) from the brain and spinal cord to the muscles and glands, or from sensory organs to the brain and spinal cord.
nerves transmit signals (conveying messages like hot, cold, or pain) to and from the brain.
cordlike, bundles of fiber that carry messages to and from the brain.
Neural tissue that conducts electrical impulses (messages) from the brain and spinal cord to all other parts of the body and/or conveys sensory information from the body to the central nervous system.
specialized cells that use chemical reactions to send an impulse from the outside world to the brain and spinal cord.
Bundles of fibers that carry messages from the brain to the spinal cord and other parts of the body.
The visual pathways of the eyes are equivalent to the co-axial cable that connects your video camera to the VCR. These nerves transmit visual information from the retina to the occipital lobe of the brain where the information is processed. During a routine eye exam an eye care professional evaluates the integrity of these nerves. Through examination brain lesions such as tumors and aneurysms can be detected in many cases.
