Sample text

The actual spinal nerve is a very short structure about 1 cm in length, although the term is often used loosely to describe the 22 LIPPINCOTT’S POCKET NEUROANATOMY nerves of the PNS. The spinal nerve terminates by dividing into an anterior and posterior ramus. Somatic plexuses, such as the cervical, brachial, and lumbosacral, are formed only by anterior rami; posterior rami remain segmental. Each pair of spinal nerves (or spinal cord segment) supplies a strip of skin with sensory innervation: a dermatome.

There are many exceptions; for instance, “slow pain” is carried on C fibers, not typically referred to as type IV fibers. Peripheral Nerves A nerve is a collection of axons bound together by connective tissue that serves to transmit electrical signals between the CNS and the periphery (FIG. 1-12).

Peripheral Nervous System The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is composed of all parts of the nervous system that are not brain or spinal cord, including the cranial and spinal nerves, plexuses, and receptors. Peripheral Receptors Nervous system receptors (FIG. 1-11) may be classified by function, axon diameter or conduction velocity or fiber type, morphology or structure, or level of adaptation.
