Cross Section of Spinal Cord

  >   Rahul's Noteblog   >   Notes on Neurology   >   Notes on The Spinal Cord   >   Cross Section of Spinal Cord

CROSS SECTIONAL STRUCTURE OF THE CORD:

Components:

1. White matter and ventral white commissure. Divided into dorsal, lateral and ventral columns.

2. Grey matter (H-shaped), with central canal and grey commissure: Dorsal and ventral horns visible and lateral horn in the thoracic zone (for sympathetic outflow).

Function of Spinal Cord:

1. Relay of sensory information and transmission to brain.

2. Motor innervation of somatic and visceral structures. Under central control.

White Matter:

Nature: Composed of ascending and descendig tracts.
