a neuron that sends messages from sensory receptors to the central nervous system. (68)
A neuron whose activity is affected by the presence of a particular type of sensory stimulus.
A neuron leading from a sensory cell to the central nervous system. (Contrast with motor neuron.)
Neuron that carries sensory information into the central nervous system, see also Interneuron, Motor neuron
a neuron conducting impulses inwards to the brain or spinal cord
a nerve cell that transduces an external stimulus into an electrical signal that can be processed by the remainder of the nervous system
a nerve cell that transmits impulses from a receptor such as those in the eye or ear to a more central location in the nervous system
a neuron that conducts information from a receptor through the cell body into the spinal cord or brain
a neuron that gets information from the external or internal environment and carries it to an interneuron in the central nervous system
A neuron which relays information from a receptor into the CNS.
represent information from a stimulus, such as light, mechanical force, or chemical substance present at a certain site in the body.
a neuron that carries signals from a sensory part of the body (skin, eye, ear, nose, tongue) to the brain
A neuron that delivers sensory information from the sensory organs to interneurons or motor neurons.
A neuron leading from a sensory receptor to the central nervous system and sending information from the receptor to the central nervous system. Sensory neurons may either link to a receptor or itself be a receptor at one end, as in some pain receptors.
A neuron, or nerve cell, that conveys messages to the brain or spinal cord from the sense receptors informing the organism about events in the environment or within the body (syn. afferent neuron). See also motor neuron, receptor.
an afferent nerve cell that carries sensory information (like sound, touch, taste, smell, or sight) to the central nervous system.
Sensory neurons (neurones) are nerve cells within the nervous system responsible for converting external stimuli from the organism's environment into internal electrical motor reflex loops and several forms of involuntary behavior, including pain avoidance. In humans, such reflex circuits are commonly located in the spinal cord.
