Sample text

More about the physiological aspects of acupuncture will be presented in Chapter 8. 3 A drawing depicting the formation of a myelin sheath around six axons or dendrites. One nerve has three layers of myelin sheath, whereas the other five nerves only have one layer. The two nuclei shown belong to neuroglia cells, which synthesize myelin. These particular neuroglia are known as Schwann cells. 4 An electron microscopic picture showing the detailed structures of a myelin sheath. There are two nerves shown; one is myelinated with more than 30 countable layers of sheath, and the other is unmyelinated and is often referred to as a naked nerve.

Different sizes for afferent nerves play an important role in the manageability of pain in acupuncture treatments. By now, the anatomical differences between afferent fibers for the special senses and for the general senses should be clear. Each special sense is confined to the branches of only one cranial nerve. Within that cranial nerve, all afferent fibers perform one identical function for detecting one special sense. Afferent fibers for the five general senses are all mixed inside every peripheral nerve branch, meaning that all peripheral nerve branches contain afferent fibers of different sizes, from A to C groups.

Keep in mind that motor nerves are limited to the efferent fibers originating from motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. Motor nerves are joined with afferent fibers for general sensations and with postganglionic sympathetic nerves to form a muscular nerve branch. This is why describing the locus where a muscular nerve enters a muscle as a “motor point” is not exactly accurate. However, it is such a commonly accepted term that we will adopt it in this book. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC Anatomy in Acupuncture 19 Muscular nerves or nerve branches, as used in our definition, are implied to contain three types of nerve fibers: efferent nerves to the skeletal muscles, postganglionic sympathetic nerves, and afferent fibers for the general senses.
