Example text

Both the SNS and PSNS use a two-neuron chain as the final common pathway to innervate their peripheral targets: smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, and glands. ) The ANS neuronal cell body located in the CNS is called preganglionic and the neuronal cell body located in the periphery is called postganglionic (also called postsynaptic). All preganglionic SNS neurons are found in thoracolumbar spinal cord segments T1 through L2. The parasympathetic division, as the name suggests, lies on either side of the SNS.

Another demyelinating disease is hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, or Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome. Here, there is an increased production of peripheral myelin protein PMP22, originally due to a duplication of a region of DNA. Peripheral neuropathy results, as well as cycles of myelination and demyelination, resulting in reduced motor nerve conduction; patients present with impaired gait.

Its anterior surface contains two prominent ridges along its length. The most medial pair of ridges are the pyramids formed by the corticospinal tracts, and the more lateral ridges are the olives, formed by the inferior olivary nuclei. Each pyramid is separated from the other by an anterior median fissure and from the more lateral olive by the anterior lateral sulcus. The anterior lateral sulcus contains the hypoglossal nerve (CN XII) fibers. The olive is bounded laterally by the posterior lateral sulcus, which contains the fibers of the glossopharyngeal nerve (CN IX) and the vagus nerve (CN X).
