Name this space: the canal in successive vertebrae through which the spinal cord passes
Identify A:In the neck region, a thickening in the spinal cord that supplies the nerve to the upper limbs
Identify B: an enlargement of the spinal cord that gives rise to the nerves of the pelvic region and lower limbs
Identify A: fibrous strand of pia mater that extends beyond the medullary cone within the lumbar cistern
Posterior Median Sulcus
Identify J:, shallow longitudinal groove on the dorsal surface of the spinal cord
Identify A: The narrow cavity in the center of the spinal cord that is continuous with the fluid-filled ventricles of the brain.
Identify this group of nerves: any of eight pairs of spinal nerves emerging from the cervical section of the spinal cord
Identify B: any of twelve pairs of spinal nerves emerging from the thoracic region of the spinal cord
Identify C:, any of five pairs of spinal nerves emerging from the lumbar section of the spinal cord
Identify D: any of five pairs of spinal nerves emerging from the sacral region of the spinal cord
Dorsal Nerve Root
Idenyify C: The branch off each side of the spinal cord between each set of adjacent vertebrae that conducts sensory impulses into the spinal cord from the periphery of the body.
Dorsal Root Ganglion
Identify D: a nodule on a dorsal root that contains cell bodies of neurons in afferent SPINAL NERVES.
Ventral Nerve Root
The branch off each side of the spinal cord between each set of adjacent vertebrae that conducts motor impulses from the spinal cord to effectors in the periphery of the body.
One of the first three branches of each spinal nerve, this smallest branch turns back through the intervertebral foramen to supply the spinal meninges and the blood vessels of the spinal meninges.
Identify 10: enlargments of sympathetic trunk contains postganglionic sympathetic cell bodies
Identify C: structure that connects the right and left parts of the gray matter of the spinal cord
Identify N: lies between the anterior gray horns and the anterior median fissure.
-interconnected by the anterior white commisure.
Identify A: outermost layer of connective tissue on the spinal nerve; a dense network of collagen fibers
Identify the nerve that the arrow is pointing to: stimulates the diaphragm and causes it to contract
a network of nerves formed by cervical and thoracic spinal nerves and supplying the arm and parts of the shoulder
Identify A: innervates quadriceps and skin of anterior thigh and medial surface of leg
