Descriptor nociceptores
Entry term(s) receptores del dolor
terminaciones nerviosas libres
Scope note: NEURONAS AFERENTES periféricas que son sensibles a las lesiones o el dolor, generalmente provocados por exposiciones térmicas extremas, fuerzas mecánicas u otros estímulos nocivos. Sus cuerpos celulares residen en los GANGLIOS ESPINALES. Sus terminales periféricas (TERMINACIONES NERVIOSAS) inervan tejidos diana y transducen estímulos nocivos, a través de los axones, hacia el SISTEMA NERVIOSO CENTRAL.

Scope note: Peripheral AFFERENT NEURONS which are sensitive to injuries or pain, usually caused by extreme thermal exposures, mechanical forces, or other noxious stimuli. Their cell bodies reside in the DORSAL ROOT GANGLIA. Their peripheral terminals (NERVE ENDINGS) innervate target tissues and transduce noxious stimuli via axons to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
