 NERVOUS SYSTEM II: PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) provides a link between you and the external world, and a means of moving within your environment. The PNS includes dorsal & ventral roots, dorsal root ganglia, mixed spinal nerves, plexi, and peripheral nerves. The motor periphery includes the Alpha Motoneurons in the ventral horn, the neuromuscular junction and most clinicians include skeletal muscle (as part of the motor unit). PNS disorders may involve any of these structures. PNS dysfunction and Clinical Electrophysiology are included.
