The spinal cord is a major part of our nervous system.
It begins at the base of the skull and extends to the
first of the lumbar vertebra. The spinal cord helps
connect the brain to the rest of the body. It
is protected by the vertebral column which has an
opening of about one centimeter, and is
also protected by 3 layers of membranes called the
spinal meninges and a special fluid called Cerebro-
Spinal Fluid. MORE!
