trigeminal sensory neuron
Sensory neuron that extends a single axon shaft along the lateral white matter of the hindbrain and spinal cord. Numerous medially projecting branches are later formed and innervate a series of target nuclei along the anteroposterior axis of the hindbrain and spinal cord. The highly branched axons innervate the integument of the head. There are several subtypes with different afferent branching morphologies.
