Encyclopedia > Efferent nerve

In the nervous system, efferent nerves otherwise known as motor or effector neuron carry nerve impulses away from the central nervous systemto effectors - either muscles or glands. This term is also used to describe relative connections between nervous structures. The motor nerves are efferent nerves involved in muscular control.The cell body of the efferent neuron is found in the central nervous system, where it is connected to a single,long axon and several short dendrons projecting out of the cell body itself. This axon then forms a neuromuscular junction with the effectors.The cell body of the motor neuron is satellite-shaped. The motor neurone is present in the grey matter of the spinal cord. The nervous system of an animal coordinates the activity of the muscles, monitors the organs, constructs and processes input from the senses, and initiates actions. ... A. A schematic view of an idealized action potential illustrates its various phases as the action potential passes a point on a cell membrane. ... A diagram showing the CNS: 1. ... Motor nerves enable the brain to stimulate muscle contraction. ... A top-down view of skeletal muscle Muscle is a contractile form of tissue. ... An axon, or nerve fibre, is a long slender projection of a nerve cell, or neuron, which conducts electrical impulses away from the neurons cell body or soma. ...


An easy mnemonic device for remember the relationship between afferent and efferent is that an afferent connection arrives and an efferent connection exits. A mnemonic (AmE [] or BrE []) is a memory aid. ...
