Anterior Horn Cells definition: Motor neurons in the anterior (ventral) horn of the spinal cord which project to skeletal muscles.
Anterior Horn Cell definition: Motor neurons in the anterior (ventral) horn of the spinal cord which project to skeletal muscles. (MeSH)
Interneurons definition: Most generally any neurons which are not motor or sensory. Interneurons may also refer to neurons whose axons remain within a particular brain region as contrasted with projection neurons which have axons projecting to other brain regions.
interneuron definition: generally neurons which are not motor or sensory; may also refer to neurons whose axons remain within a particular brain region as contrasted with projection neurons which have axons projecting to other brain regions.
Interneuron definition: A general term for any neurons which are not motor or sensory. Interneuron may also refer to neurons whose axons remain within a particular brain region as contrasted with projection neurons which have axons projecting to other brain regions. (from MeSH)
Motor Neurons definition: Neurons which activate muscle cells.
motor neuron definition: efferent neurons which activate muscle cells.
Motor Neuron definition: Neurons which activate muscle cells. (MeSH)
Motor Neurons, Gamma definition: Motor neurons which activate the contractile regions of intrafusal SKELETAL MUSCLE FIBERS, thus adjusting the sensitivity of the MUSCLE SPINDLES to stretch. Gamma motor neurons may be "static" or "dynamic" according to which aspect of responsiveness (or which fiber types) they regulate. The alpha and gamma motor neurons are often activated together (alpha gamma coactivation) which allows the spindles to contribute to the control of movement trajectories despite changes in muscle length.
Gamma Motor Neuron definition: Motor neurons which activate the contractile regions of intrafusal muscle fibers, thus adjusting the sensitivity of the muscle spindles to stretch. (MeSH)
