The spinal cord is a complex and important piece of the central nervous system. The anatomy of the spinal cord with various motor, sensory tracts, and neural cell bodies can be overwhelming when first encountered. There are 31 pairs of spinal nerves that find their origin within the spinal cord. These nerves are composed of both a motor component that controls voluntary muscles as well as a sensory component that receives sensory information. Hence lesions of the spinal cord can present in a variety of different ways. It is crucial to understand the basic anatomy for interpreting the clinical presentation of any spinal cord lesion.
super clear, thank you very much. especially the graphics are pretty good, very explaining. lecturer explains well too.
This was very helpful, pretty neat and clear explanation. Thank you very much.
Love Lecturio! The teaching and pictures are awesome! Thank you!
The complexity of the subject makes it a nightmare to study a reference book or attend a lecture with someone who didn't know what they were doing. Dr. Canby saves so much time and explains the divisions and detailed classifications of the spinal cord with such ease it is impressive. I came across this app a month away from my finals because I didn't understand most of the neurosciences subjects. Trust me, I understood Neurosciences (including neuroanatomy from this course) in just a month way better than all my attempts during the previous 6 months. Very well done course! It integrates the mapping with clinical correlations on the spot and makes everything easy to memorize.
