diploneural (adjective), more diploneural, most diploneural
Relating to a body part; such as, certain muscles which are connected by two nerves from different sources.
Defective nutrition caused by disease of the nervous system.
1. Diagnosis of disease states by recording the spontaneous electrical activity of tissues or organs or by the response to stimulation of electrically excitable tissue.
2. The recording and study of the electrical properties of skeletal muscles by means of surface or needle electrodes.

Useful in kinesiology and the study of neuromuscular function, extent of nerve lesion, and reflex response.

3. An electrodiagnostic test that assists in detecting and locating peripheral nerve injury or disease.

The study is usually done in conjunction with electromyography.

1. Destruction of nerve tissue by electricity with an electric needle.
2. A method of producing neurolysis (destruction or dissolution of nerve tissue) with an electric needle.
1. An electromyography in which the nerve of the muscle under study is stimulated by application of an electric current.
2. A method of measuring changes in a peripheral nerve by combining electromyography of a muscle with electrical stimulation of the nerve trunk carrying fibers to and from the muscle.
3. The recording of electrical activities of muscles induced by the electric stimulation of nerves.
esthesioneure (s) (noun), esthesioneures (pl)
A neuron that receives input signals from sensory cells and from other neurons: While playing tennis, Rebecca injured one of her esthesioneures causing severe pain in her right hand while she was playing doubles.
esthesioneurosis (s) (noun), esthesioneuroses (pl)
Any disorder of the nerves or of sensation: Dr. Simmons, the famed neurologist, studied the various conditions of esthesioneurosis.
evisceroneurotomy (s) (noun), evisceroneurotomies (pl)
A surgical procedure to remove an eye which may involve severing or removing the optic nerve (or a part of it): Due to the advanced state of the disease in his left eye, the doctor advised Caleb that he would be performing a necessary evisceroneurotomy to remove the severely damaged eye.
gamma motor neuron
A small nerve originating in the anterior horns of the spinal cord that transmits impulses through type A gamma fibers to intrafusal fibers of the muscle spindle for muscle control.
1. A ganglioneuroma (tumour, neuroma, containing ganglion cells, often located in the hands, wrists or tops of the feet) derived from neurones, with numerous glial cells and fibers in the matrix.
2. A tumor having the characteristics of glioma and neuroma.
The microscopic anatomy of the nervous system; neurohistology.
hodoneuromere (s) (noun), hodoneuromeres (pl)
An embryonic body segment together with the segmental nerves that supply it: "The hodoneuromere is a metameric segment, or section, which is the length of the neural tube with its pair of nerves and their branches."

A cross reference of word units that are related, directly or indirectly, to "cell, cells, cell nucleus": celli-; cellulo-; cyto-; endothelio-; gameto-; glio-; kary-, karyo-.
