Peripheral Nervous System. The parts of the nervous system other than the brain and spinal cord; includes all the nerves that connect the CNS to receptors, muscles, organs, and glands throughout the body.
Peripheral nervous system. Nerves that conduct impulses outside the brain and spinal cord i.e., outside the CNS. However, the cell bodies of PNS nerves reside in the CNS, with their lengths extending out to peripheral parts of the body.
peripheral nervous system. The pathways by which the central nervous system receives sensory information from the body and sends commands to muscles. The peripheral nervous system is divided into two halves. The sensory system brings information in from the body, while the motor system sends commands out to muscles.
Peripheral nervous system. is defined as those nerves that lie outside the brain, brainstem or spinal cord. The PNS consists of nerve trunks made up of both afferent fibres or axons conducting sensory information to the spinal cord and brainstem and efferent fibres transmitting impulses primarily to the muscles
Pulse Noise is unwanted noise generated by electrical motors. It can come from your car's engine or even someone else's through your car's antenna. PNS provides a cleaner sound by reducing noise that interferes with the FM signal.
peripheral nervous system. One of the two major divisions of the nervous system. Nerves in the PNS connect the central nervous system with sensory organs, other organs, muscles, blood vessels, and glands.
Positive negative selection. A laboratory technique that accelerates the identification of genetically engineered organisms that possess desired genetic changes by selecting against the organisms that do not have the desired characteristics.
