Fovea costalis caudalis was more distinct than fovea costalis cranialis.
Despues de producirse la sensibilizacion periferica se genera una sensibilizacion central tanto en las neuronas de segundo orden del nucleo de la pars caudalis como en las neuronas de tercer orden del talamo, las cuales son bombardeadas por una gran cantidad de impulsos anormales generados en las aferentes primarias que normalmente no generarian respuesta en esa area [3,12,13].
But if the triptan is unable to curb this process and ascending pain signals activate the trigeminal nucleus caudalis, it's game on: The resultant central sensitization is beyond the reach of that medication class.
En cambio, en Anhima se observaron que los musculos que participan en la elevacion, descenso y flexion del humero, asi como en la estabilizacion de la cintura escapulopectoral son los mas largos (Coracobrachialis cranialis, Coracobrachialis caudalis, Rhomboideus superficialis, Rhomboideus profundus y Triceps brachii).
Cutaneous allodynia refers to a non-painful stimulus to the skin being perceived as painful and implies sensitization of second-order neurons of the trigeminal nucleus caudalis. Once second-order trigeminal neurons become sensitized, migraine becomes much more refractory to treatment.
In the brain of male medaka, high levels of activity are localized in sections containing the preoptic (POA) and suprachiasmatic nuclei (SC) (63-75 fmol/hr) and low levels in the nuclei periventricular dorsalis (HD), ventralis (HV), and caudalis (Hc), nuclei diffusus of lobulus inferiores (NDIL), and nuclei tuberi anteriores (TA) and posteriores (TP) ([is less than] 25 fmol/hr).
Many other much less specialized reptiles are also occasionally found in these deserts, among them the western striped mabuya (Mabuya occidentalis), the viper Bitis caudalis, which also lives in relatively moist areas, the Cape cobra (Naja nivea), the Cape side-necked turtle (Pelomedusa subrufa), which makes use of even the smallest pools in the Kalahari, and the leopard tortoise (Geochelone pardalis), which terminates its hibernation when the summer rains begin.

The subnucleus caudalis (pars caudalis) is the lowest division of the trigeminal spinal nucleus, the neurons of which respond to tooth-pulp stimulation.[11] However, the referred pain is perceived to emanate from this trigeminal branch only because the sensations are generated within the subnucleus caudalis in response to phrenic stimuli, and relayed from here to the cerebral cortex via the thalamus.
He watched lizard flirtations in a part of Haiti where the ranges of two sister species of Anolis, websteri and caudalis, met.
