pathway Spinal cord receives from PNS info and sends to brain.
- afferent (asending)
the pathway from brain through spinal cord to PNS. Cauda equina exits after end of spinal cord.
- Motor nerves
- efferent (descending)
blank is bundles of myelinated axons of both sensory and motor. These are the axons that carry the information quickly to the cell bodies, dendrites and terminals,
The white matter
cell bodies, dendrites and terminals, in effect the synapses which are all located in the?
loss of voluntary muscle control below level of injury
hyperactive reflexes (reflex arcs intact but no longer mediated by brain)injury sustained before the spinal roots
spinal nerves affected after exit from cord
no reflex arc since impulses cannot enter the cord
voluntary muscle loss below level of injury
