The peripheral nervous system
is made up of different types of nerves -- some are mechanical (feel pressure) and others detect temperature (heat).
Patients with diabetes mellitus, kidney, liver, and thyroid diseases, amyloidosis, chronic heart failure, malignancies, or abuse of alcohol and patients diagnosed to have peripheral nervous system
diseases were not included in the study.
These regions play a critical role in receiving sensory information from the peripheral nervous system
and the spinal cord, and relaying messages throughout the brain that control thinking, learning, movement, and other behaviors.
Since ALS involves the loss of motor neurons whose axons are located in the peripheral nervous system
, drugs can be delivered by injection.
The progressive muscle weakness that accompanies this disease results from the involvement of the motor neurons of the peripheral nervous system
This system is called the peripheral nervous system
The first electrophysiologic study of the peripheral nervous system
in neonates and young children whose mothers drank alcohol heavily during pregnancy found slower ulnar motor nerve velocity and smaller proximal and distal amplitude in 17 children exposed to more than 2 ounces of alcohol per day in utero, compared with 13 children whose mothers did not drink during pregnancy (J.

One promising prospect is Schwann cells, myelin-making cells from the peripheral nervous system
(the network of nerves outside the brain and spinal cord).
