    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Smärta kan betraktas som en varningssignal för annalkande eller redan inträffad vävnadsskada och har därigenom en uppenbar skyddsfunktion. Förmågan att genom snabba förändringar av pågående motorik avvärja en skadlig stimulering återfinns både hos människa och hos mer enkelt uppbyggda organismer långt ned på den fylogenetiska stegen.

    Abstract : - In spite of their accessibility and important sensory function,the nervous tissue components of human oral and vaginal mucosa and skin have beensubject to very few, if any, systematic investigations. Studies on the innervationof oral tissues have mainly focused on the dental pulp, the periodontium and thegingiva, probably because of specific clinical interest, thus largely neglectingthe mucosa.

  5. 5. Observations on morphology and function of cutaneous and subcutaneous sensory mechanoreceptors : an experimental study in mammals

    Abstract : Tactile sensory discrimination is dependent upon an intact system of peripheral mechanoreceptors, their nerve fibre afferents with cell bodies in the dorsal root ganglion and the dorsal column-medial lemniscal system which relays tactile information from the skin to the cortex. Injury to any part of the afferent pathways leads to compromised mechanoreceptive perception. READ MORE
