  • Nociceptors are free nerve endings, but not all free nerve endings in skeletal muscle are nociceptive. Nociceptive free nerve endings are connected to the CNS by thin myelinated fibers or unmyelinated afferent fibers. In the light microscope, free nerve endings look like a string of beads, i.e., they consist of axonal expansions (varicosities) connected by thin axonal segments. The neuropeptide substance P has been reported to be present predominantly in nociceptive afferent fibers. In the… CONTINUE READING
