The net effect of the indirect pathway is inhibition of some motor impulses, resulting in smoother, coordinated motor movement (Rodriguez-Oroz et al.
Alpha motor neurons are responsible for conducting motor impulses at 70 to 120 m/s and Abeta or A-alpha fibers with a similar conduction speed are used in the afferent pathway of vibration sense and proprioception.
conduct motor impulses from the brain to the spinal cord where somatic motor neurons conduct impulses to various skeletal muscles effectors.
There is a constant back-and-forth between motor impulses and visual feedback.
Motor impulses are transmitted along A alpha or gamma, not A delta.
The agent blocks the conduction of sensory and motor impulses from the surgical site to the brain.
The hippocampus is linked to emotion, learning and memory, and the processing of sensory and motor impulses.
Having identified three kinds of motor impulses used in dancing, the Pessos separated these impulses and developed exercises to teach mastery of each.
The large-cell axons, while providing synaptic input to each other and perhaps also to the small cells, produce the bursts of motor impulses responsible for heart muscle contraction.
The robustness of the integrating ganglion as a rhythmic heartbeat activator was emphasized by these observations: despite major perturbation of individual axon frequency, the rhythmical output of tightly grouped motor impulses was never disrupted.
Heavy rockers, he argues, "produce powerfully articulated and textured tonal sensations of impact and motion, triggering hefty (nondance) motor impulses in the listener.
Phrenic nerve motor impulses arise from the dorsal respiratory group (DRG) of nuclei which lie within the nucleus of the tractus solitarius (solitary nucleus) in the medulla (Fig 1).
