You must use at least one book for each and 1 journal for each; the others can be Internet sources. Neurons form two types of nerves (a) sensory nerves which receive the information to convey to brain or spinal cord. 2. Hormones are directly poured into blood.

Nerves and Nerve Injuries is the first comprehensive work devoted to the nerves of the body. An indispensable work for anyone studying the nerves or treating patients with nerve injuries, these books will become the ‘go to’ resource in the field. Clinical Anatomy of the Cranial Nerves combines anatomical knowledge, pathology, clinical examination, and explanation of clinical findings, drawing together material typically scattered throughout anatomical textbooks. All of the pertinent anatomical topics are conveniently organized to instruct on anatomy, but also on how to examine the.   Examples of splanchnic (visceral) nerves are: Cervical cardiac nerves & thoracic visceral nerves which synapse in the sympathetic chain Thoracic splanchnic nerves (greater, lesser, least) which synapse in the prevertebral ganglion Lumbar splanchnic nerves which synapse in the prevertebral ganglion Sacral splanchnic nerves which synapse in the inferior hypogastric plexus These all contain afferent (sensory) nerves as well, also known as GVA (general visceral afferent) neurons. innervates the anterior and lateral skin and muscles of the trunk // gives rise to nerves of the limbs posterior ramus innervates the muscles and joints in that region of the spine and the skin of the back.

B) nerves. C) columns. D) ganglia. E) horns. 2. Another type of sensory ganglion is a cranial nerve ganglion. This is analogous to the dorsal root ganglion, except that it is associated with a cranial nerve (associated with the brain) instead of a spinal nerve (associated with the spinal cord). The roots of cranial nerves are within the cranium, whereas the ganglia are outside the skull. The preganglionic fibers of the SNS prevarication within the ventral horn of the spinal cord and emerge from the mid subdivision of the spinal cord, the thoracic and lumbar parts. The axons of these fibers project into the sympathetic concatenation or collateral ganglia (Bear, ). The fibers emerge from the spinal cord as white rami communicants which connect them.
