For a number of years I had been studying the physiology of the spinocervical tract, a somatosensory pathway, in the cat's spinal cord. This chapter introduces the general anatomy and organization of the spinal cord.

The spinal cord is the part of the central nervous system that controls the voluntary muscles of the limbs and trunk, and which receives sensory information from these regions.

It also controls most of the viscera and blood vessels of the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. Fine Organization of the Spinal Cord. The fine structure of the mammalian spinal cord was studied mainly on rodents, cats and primates. The most important results were those of Rexed 2, 3 and Scheibel and Scheibel on the cat spinal cord.

Although the overall organization of the human spinal cord is similar to that of other mammals, there are some differences both in the cyto- and by: 4. The Spinal Cord, a collaboration with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, is the first comprehensive book on the anatomy of the mammalian spinal cord.

Tens of thousands of articles and dozens of books are published on this subject each year, and a great deal of experimental work has been carried out on the rat spinal cord.5/5(1). This latter book includes the first published atlases of the spinal cord of the marmoset and rhesus monkeys and the first diagrammatic and cytoarchitectonic atlas of the human spinal cord.

International perspectives on spinal cord injury Every year between and people suffer a spinal cord injury, with road traffic crashes, falls and violence as the three leading causes. People with spinal cord injury are two to five times more likely to die prematurely. Spinal cord injury is a significant public health issue 2.

Personal and social impacts of spinal cord injury are considerable 3. Barriers to services and environments restrict participation and undermine quality of life 4. Spinal cord injury is preventable 5. Spinal cord. The neurons and fiber bundles within the spinal cord are organized in a simpler and more uniform way than other parts of the CNS, but the features of organization and function are similar to those found in more complexly organized regions of the by: 2.

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves extending from the spinal cord that often results in permanent changes in motor and/or sensory abilities and other.

Dedicated to the funding of targeted research to maximize functional recovery and cure paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.In this section, we discuss the overall organization of the brain and the functions associated with different brain areas, beginning with what can be seen as an extension of the brain, the spinal cord.

The Spinal Cord. It can be said that the spinal cord is what connects the brain to the outside world. Because of it, the brain can act.

The spinal cord is a bundle of nerve fibers that extend from the brain stem down the spinal column to the lower back. A component of the central nervous system, it sends and receives information between the brain and the rest of the body.; The spinal cord is composed of neurons that send and receive signals along tracts towards and away from the : Regina Bailey.
