About Spinal Cord
The Spinal Cord is the most important structure between the body and the brain. The spinal cord is a long, fragile tubelike structure that begins at the end of the brain stem and continues down almost to the bottom of the spine (spinal column). It is the cylindrical bundle of nerve fibres and associated tissue which is enclosed in the spine and connects nearly all parts of the body to the brain, with which it forms the central nervous system. The spinal cord consists of nerves that carry incoming and outgoing messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
