The somatic nervous system collects sensory data from skin thermoreceptors
as well as from the internal organs through the blood stream, evaluates this data, and yields a thermal comfort response after processing the data based on the psychological state.
Such modality interconversions are reasonable because chemoreceptors and thermoreceptors
in nematodes utilize the same classes of intracellular signaling molecules and transcription factors as animal photoreceptors (Svendsen and McGhee, 1995; Coburn and Bargmann, 1996; Mori, 1999; Troemel, 1999; Komatsu et al., 1999; Satterlee et al., 2001; Arendt, 2003; Kimura et al., 2004; Inada et al., 2006).
Toftum and Nielsen (1996) explained this relationship such that when the deep body temperature is raised due to the increased physical activity, the influence of the impulses from thermoreceptors
on the thermoregulation is decreased to maintain the heat balance.
Early detection of ulceration is complicated because diabetes causes a loss of connection between the muscle and the nerves (sensory denervation) and affects thermoreceptors
and mechanoreceptors by depriving the patient from feeling any symptom, such as pain or swelling, when some injury has occurred [9, 12].
Patients may state they are warmer than they actually are as the thermoreceptors
aren't functioning correctly, and we monitor their temperature less frequently as we think they can tell us when they feel cold (Sessler & Kurtz, 2008).
The hsI may function in forming a small plastron-like air bubble associated with the club; th may function as hygro- and thermoreceptors
when the RWW is out of water (Hix et al.
Evaluation of pain threshold by means of thermoreceptors
More recent studies have analyzed the nerve factors, thermoreceptors
, and nociceptors in women with vulvar pain.
Unpleasant perceptions of effort during exercise can therefore arise from various chemoreceptors, ergoreceptors and thermoreceptors
in the body, but the perceptions most relevant to catastrophic neuronal dysfunction are probably oppressive feelings of heat and breathlessness, which build until they become imperatives to reduce exercise intensity.
These control centres receive nerve impulses from thermoreceptors
in the skin and the hypothalamus (Tortora & Grabowski 2003).
