Fig. 3 Posterior spinal cord syndrome. Fig. 4 Brown-Séquard syndrome. Fig. 5 Central cord syndrome. ”30 The pathophysiology of spinal cord concussion is unknown. 31 Burning-hands syndrome, which frequently occurs in athletes, was first described by Maroon in 1977. This syndrome is characterized by transient paresthesias and dysesthesias in the upper limbs, especially the hands. It is most commonly reported in athletes, mostly football players, and it is most likely due to a hyperextension cervical spine injury.
Some pathological reflexes (Babinski) may represent a bias of alternative interneuronal spinal pathway due to a pathological process and not the creation of new pathways. ■■ The spinal cord can give rise not only to simple reflex responses but also to more complex primitive motor patterns, such as are required in basic locomotion. 16 Acknowledgments ■■ The spinal cord is like all other centers of the CNS, with inputs from other brain structures and sensory information from various body parts, with processing units, and with outputs to the brain and various body parts.
This figure is subdivided into three parts. The supraspinal levels include various descending pathways from the telencephalon and brain stem involved in activating, stopping, or modulating characteristics of the spinal central pattern generator (CPG) for locomotion. Although the supraspinal pathways are shown here to act only on the CPG, these structures also act on interneurons (IN) and motoneurons (FG and E) as well as on the excitability of transmission in reflex pathways at motoneuronal or premotoneuronal (presynaptic and/or interneuronal) levels.
