COCCYGEAL VERTEBRA definition: Four vertebral segments positioned at the base of the spine that are fused. (NCI)
Coccygeal Vertebra definition: Four vertebral segments positioned at the base of the spine that are fused.
Renal segment definition: Organ segment in the kidney defined by the distribution of the segmental renal arteries.
Spinal Facilitation definition: 1. The maintenance of a pool of neurons (e.g., premotor neurons, motor neurons or preganglionic sympathetic neurons in one or more segments of the spinal cord) in a state of partial or subthreshold excitation; in this state, less afferent stimulation is required to trigger the discharge of impulses. 2. A theory regarding the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying the neuronal activity associated with somatic dysfunction. 3. Facilitation may be due to sustained increase in afferent input, aberrant patterns of afferent input, or changes within the affected neurons themselves or their chemical environment. Once established, facilitation can be sustained by normal central nervous system (CNS) activity.
Segment definition: One of the parts into which something naturally divides.
Couinaud Liver Segment definition: Any of the eight liver segments that has its own vascular inflow, outflow, and biliary drainage, thus defined as functionally independent.
Segment of brain definition: Organ region of neuraxis with one or more fixed or anchored fiat boundaries. Examples: thalamus, midbrain, pons, cerebellum, and spinal cord.
Organ segment definition: Organ region with one or more anchored fiat boundaries. Examples: artery, trunk of nerve, cervical part of esophagus, pelvic part of vagina, horn of thyroid cartilage, anterior segment of eyeball.
Leg definition: The inferior part of the lower extremity between the KNEE and the ANKLE.

LEG definition: One of the two lower extremities in humans used for locomotion and support. (NCI)

SACRAL VERTEBRA definition: One of the usually five fused vertebrae forming the triangular bone just below the lumbar vertebrae. (NCI)
Sacral Vertebra definition: One of the usually five fused vertebrae forming the triangular bone just below the lumbar vertebrae.
Genomic Segment definition: Genomic segment extracted from a library e.g. BAC or YAC library to be used in the genetic manipulation of the animal model.
initial segment definition: Portion of the axon proximal to the neuronal cell body, at the level of the axon hillock. The action potentials that propagate along the axon are generated at the level of this initial segment. [GOC:nln]
Cell segment definition: Cell region demarcated by one or more anchored fiat boundaries. Examples: cell body of neuron, flagellum, nerve fiber.
Cardinal segment of brain definition: Organ region of brain with one or more fixed or anchored fiat boundaries. Examples: thalamus, midbrain, pons, cerebellum, and medulla oblongata.
segment definition: Segment
