spinal trigeminal tract

Biology; Neuroscience

Brainstem tract carrying fibers from the trigeminal nerve to the spinal nucleus of the trigeminal complex (which serves as the relay for painful stimulation of the face).

ramus

Biology; Neuroscience

Branch; typically applied to the white and gray communicating rami that carry visceral motor axons to the segmental nerves.

sleep spindles

Biology; Neuroscience

Bursts of electroencephalographic activity, at a frequency about 10–14 Hz and lasting a few seconds; spindles characterize the initial descent into non-REM sleep.

motor neuron

Biology; Neuroscience

By usage, a nerve cell that innervates skeletal muscle.

electrogenic

Biology; Neuroscience

Capable of generating an electrical current; usually applied to membrane transporters that create electrical currents while translocating ions.

foveola

Biology; Neuroscience

Capillary and rod-free zone in the center of the fovea.

sporadic

Biology; Neuroscience

Cases of a disease that apparently occur at random in a population; contrasts with familial or inherited.
