  The spinal cord roughly looks like a long tube, with a diameter of only cm, and yet this crucial part of the nervous system is essential for controlling how . Human nervous system - Human nervous system - The spinal cord: The spinal cord is an elongated cylindrical structure, about 45 cm (18 inches) long, that extends from the medulla oblongata to a level between the first and second lumbar vertebrae of the backbone. The terminal part of the spinal cord is called the conus medullaris. The spinal cord is composed of long tracts of myelinated nerve.

  Thirty-one pairs of spinal nerves (sensory and motor) branch from the human spinal cord. Each spinal nerve is formed from the combination of nerve fibers from its posterior and anterior roots. The posterior root is the sensory (afferent) root that carries sensory information to the brain from other areas of the body. Purchase The Spinal Cord - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book.

The book begins with a review of our current understanding of the structure and functions of the spinal cord. Special reference is made to the phylogeny of the vertebrate spinal cord because the authors' interpretation of the development and organization of the human spinal cord is specifically an evolutionary one.5/5(1).

In summary, this book is a detailed and comprehensive text of the morphological development of the spinal cord, providing new and original data on human spinal cord development. It provides a developmental framework for someone deeply interested in the spinal by:   The Spinal Cord from Gestational Week 4 to the 4th Postnatal Month (Atlas of Human Central Nervous System Development Book 1) - Kindle edition by Bayer, Shirley A., Altman, Joseph.

The human spinal cord has 12 thoracic segments, 5 lumbar segments, 5 sacral segments, and 1 coccygeal segment, making a total of 31 segments. Pairs of spinal nerves arise from the spinal cord and leave the vertebral column through the intervertebral foramina.

Anatomy of the Spinal Cord • Cylinder of nerve tissue within the vertebral canal (thick as a finger) – vertebral column grows faster so in an adult the spinal cord only extends to L1 • 31 pairs of spinal nerves arise from cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral regions of the cord – each cord segment gives rise to a pair of spinal nerves.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE SPINAL CORD. The spinal cord is developed from the caudal cylindrical part of the neural tube. When this part of the neural tube is first formed, its cavity is in the form of a dorsoventral cleft. The lateral walls are thick, but the roof (dorsal), and the.

Growth is rapid this week. Just four weeks after conception, the neural tube along your baby's back is closing. The baby's brain and spinal cord will develop from the neural tube. The heart and other organs also are starting to form and the heart begins to beat.

Structures necessary to the formation of the eyes and ears develop. Development of the spine and spinal cord begins during the third week of gestation. Early development includes formation of primitive neural tissue, notochord develop- ment, and of the axes of the embryo.

The spinal cord does not extend to the coccygeal region because during development the vertebral column elon­gates more rapidly than the spinal cord.

The filum terminate anchors the spinal cord within the vertebral column. In-fact, the filum terminale is a long slender filament at the end of the spinal cord.

Studies of human movement have proliferated in recent years. This greatly expanded and thoroughly updated reference surveys the literature on the corticospinal control of spinal cord circuits in human subjects, showing how different circuits can be studied, their role in normal movement and how they malfunction in disease states.
