2-Minute Neuroscience: Spinal Cord Cross-section


In my 2-Minute Neuroscience videos I simplistically explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this video, I cover the spinal cord in cross-section. I discuss how the spinal cord is composed of grey and white matter. The grey matter is divided into 3 regions: the posterior horn, anterior horn, and intermediate grey matter. The white matter is divided into the posterior, anterior, and lateral funiculi. I describe all of these subdivisions and the functions they are primarily involved in.
