Local sign withdrawal, a reflex to direct the limb away from noxious cutaneous stimuli, is thought to be indicative of a modular organization of the spinal cord. To assess the integrity of such an organization of the spinal cord in chronic human spinal cord injury (SCI), we tested the electromyogram (EMG) and joint torque responses to cutaneous stimuli applied to 6 locations of the leg in 10 SCI volunteers and 3 spinal-intact controls. The 6 locations included the medial arch of the foot, the… CONTINUE READING
