changed or adjusted to be suitable. I.e cannot feel toes when not thinking about them.
sensory (afferent) fibers entering the grey matter of the spinal cord
collection of nerve cell bodies in the peripheral nervous system

Free nerve endings, pain and temperature nerves have this (non discriminative)
Lower motor neurons
located in PNS, cell bodies are located in spinal cord and their nerve fibers extend to and make direct contact with muscles
