Organization in the Spinal Cord Book Excerpt:

The research described in this book arose, in large part, from a sense of frustration. For a number of years I had been studying the physiology of the spinocervical tract, a somatosensory pathway, in the cat's spinal cord. But I did not know, precisely, where the cells of origin of the tract were located and therefore did not know what they looked like or whether there were any correlations between structure and function. It was true that electrophysiolo gical experiments had indicated their probable situation in the dorsal horn, and anatomical work had described the morphology of cells that were likely to give rise to the axons of the tract; but this was not satisfactory. With the publication, by Stretton and Kravitz in 1968, of the Procion Yellow ionophoretic method for intracellular staining, a new tool became available for studying the morphology of physiologically identified neurones. We used the techniques and, although very pleased with the beautiful appearance of the dendritic trees of neurones seen in the fluorescence microscope, we were again frustrated, this time by the inability of Procion Yellow to stain axons for any considerable length. Therefore, P. K. Rose and P. J. Snow and I began to try to develop a method that would stain the axon, together with its collaterals, in addition to the soma and dendrites of an intracellularly re corded neurone.

Development of the Human Spinal Cord Book Excerpt:

There exists a wealth of information about the development of the spinal cord in journal articles and monographs, yet this beautifully illustrated work is the first book devoted to this important topic. Because the developing human spinal cord cannot be subjected to experimental manipulations, the knowledge gained from experimental work in animals is applied here to an interpretation of the time course and mechanisms of spinal cord development in man. 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. Following a detailed experiment-based account of spinal cord development in the rat, the development of the human spinal cord is described, illustrated and interpreted in separate chapters during three epochs: the first trimester (the embryonic period), the second and third trimesters (the fetal period), and the first year of postnatal life. Special attention is paid to such topics as neurons, and the growth and myelination of the ascending and descending fiber tracts of the spinal cord. The book ends with a correlation of the development of motor behavior with different stages in the morphological development of the human spinal cord during the embryonic, fetal, and postnatal periods. The successive acquisition of voluntary control over different parts of the body during infancy is correlated with the progressive myelination of the corticospinal tract. * The book contains an extensive review of work on spinal cord organization and development throughout the 20th century. * The interpretations are based on experimental studies of spinal cord development in the rat carried out by the authors and their associates. * The histological material on human spinal cord development is the largest ever assembled and reproduced (combining the Carnegie, Minot, and Yakovlev Collections). * The collected material (which varies in quality and some of it has begun to fade) has been digitized and electronically reprocessed for improved reproduction. * Discrete components of the spinal cord and new developments are highlighted by color coding; typically on one side only, leaving the contralateral side untouched to allow the reader to use his own interpretation. * Summary graphs are presented, many in color, to convey important structural relationships, developmental events, or theories. * The authors revive a few forgotten theories and offer several new ones regarding the development and organization of the human spinal cord. Development of the Human Spinal Cord will be of interest to developmental biologists, neuroscientists, embryologists, molecular biologists (those working on stem cell research), pediatric neurologists, pathologists, child and developmental psychologists, and their students and trainees.

Sensory Mechanisms of the Spinal Cord Book Excerpt:

The goal of this monograph is to provide an overview of current thought about spinal cord mechanisms for sensory processing. We hope that the book will be useful both to basic neuroscientists and to clinicians. So me historical aspects of the problem and a few definitions are treated in the first chapter. The second chapter reviews the organiza tion of the peripheral nervous system from the standpoint of sensory receptors and primary afferent axons. The third chapter is concerned with what is known about the structure of the dorsal horn, while the fourth chapter considers the activity of dorsal horn interneurons. The clinical, behavioral, and neurophysiological evidence for what parts of the cord white matter contain particular sensory pathways is discussed in Chapter 5, and details about the various pathways in the dorsal columns, the dorsolateral fasciculus, and the ventral quadrant form the . subject matter of Chapters 6 through 8. The final chapter is an attempt to summarize what is presently known about the receptors and the spinal cord pathways responsible for the sensations of touch-pressure, flutter-vibration, pain, temperature, position sense and visceral sensa tion and about descending control systems.

The Brain and Spinal Cord in 3D Book Excerpt:

Everyone knows that the brain is responsible for our smarts and the spinal cord holds us up, but students may be surprised to learn how much more these powerhouses are responsible for. Together they control the nervous system. Without them, we would not be able to think, remember, digest nutrients, breathe, blink, swallow, and so much more. Featuring clear and arresting 3D illustrations, this volume takes readers through the brain and spinal cord, covering their parts and functions, and serves as a comprehensive introduction to the human body.
