I was wondering about what types of drugs/chemicals can be used to inhibit the transmission of sensory nerves only, and not effect any nerves involved with heart rate, respiration, digestive and such. I suppose these drugs would affect the somatosensory cortex of the brain. I know there are some drugs/chemicals that are derived or extracted from plants or animals that if used in proper amounts, will not affect nerves of large diameters. I was uncertained if there was anything that would not affect sensory nerves instead. Also was wondering what side-effects they have such as being permanent, or damaging to the nerves or other cells in the body. I respect to sensory nerves I mean any nerves involved in the five senses of the body. Thanks for any help, also any resources are welcome.
