It is only when the CNS has received and analysed information from various sources that it can formulate an appropriate response. If this requires bodily movement, then motor pathways are involved. Essentially, the final outcome of activity in motor pathways is to move a number of muscles in the correct sequence using the correct force to execute the movement desired. On the face of it, this sounds quite simple until we consider the information required to make specific muscles act correctly. 5 Sensory pathways Sensory pathways are simpler than motor pathways in their general plan.

The sympathetic system leaves the CNS, with the ventral roots of the spinal nerves leaving from first thoracic (T1) to the second or third lumbar segments (L2, L3) of the spinal cord (the thoracolumbar outflow). The parasympathetic system leaves the CNS in some of the cranial nerves and in the sacral spinal nerves (the craniosacral outflow). There are also afferent neurons supplying 30 The central nervous system the viscera, but these are usually designated as viscerosensory nerves and considered as part of the peripheral sensory nervous system so that the term autonomic is usually restricted to just the motor neurons defined above.

This is absolutely vital in preventing the electrical activity spreading at random and generating total chaos in the nervous system. We have already seen that neurons will either generate an action potential or they will not—the ‘all or none’ rule. It follows that if a neuron is conducting an impulse, there is no physiological way to stop the neuron conducting. Along the chain of neurons that are required to get information from one part of the brain to another or from sensory receptor to effector, the only places where information may be modified are at synapses.
