Sensory pathways have a relatively simple job to do in conveying information from one place to another. 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.

Regenerating processes will grow along the sheaths vacated by the degenerate peripheral segments but, unfortunately, will occupy any empty axon sheath If a peripheral nerve is crushed rather than severed, the distal part will still degenerate; the axon sheaths will be flattened initially, but will recover their shape quite quickly. As the proximal part regenerates, it will have an intact sheath so will establish the correct connections. A crush injury will produce temporary paralysis and loss of sensation, but recovery is usually very good, although it may not be 100%.
