The Propriospinal System & the Capabilities of the Isolated Spinal Cord
1) Intersegmental reflex connections by Propriospinal neurons & propriospinal tracts
(fore- & hindlimbs, neck & limb movements)

2) Spinal Locomotion
Basic pattern of locomotion
programmed at the level of the spinal cord.

3) Spinal Shock Reversible motor & autonomic areflexia following spinal cord section (local cooling, local anesthesia)

many months in humans
few minutes in frogs
hours in carnivores
days or weeks in monkeys
