The spinal cord has been the subject of intensive neuroanatomical and morphological research for more than a century (His 1889; Ramon Y Cajal 1890), mainly because it provided an appropriate model to study the relationship between (neural) anatomy and function. The anatomical organization of the rat spinal cord is relatively simple and forms the basis for its function as an intermediate between the central brain and the peripheral body.
