EXERCISE 21 – SPINAL CORD AND SPINAL NERVES OBJECTIVES 1. To identify important anatomical areas of the spinal cord, and to name the neuron type found in these areas (where applicable). 2. To define the cauda equina and filum terminale . 3. To name the meningeal coverings of the spinal cord, and to state their function. 4. To describe the origin, fiber composition, and distribution of the spinal nerves, differentiating between roots, the spinal nerve proper, and rami, and to discuss the result of transecting these structures. 5. To identify the four nerve plexuses, the major nerves of each, and their distribution. SPINAL CORD ANATOMY: Meningeal coverings /spaces: dura mater arachnoid mater pia mater epidural space subarachnoid space filum terminale cauda equina gray vs. white matter gray commissure dorsal and ventral horns of gray matter dorsal and ventral roots dorsal root ganglia central canal anterior median fissure white columns (NO SPECIFICS on the white columns - e.g. anterior funiculi)
