OBJECTIVES The sympathetic skin response (SSR) is a technique to assess the sympathetic cholinergic pathways, and it can be used to study the central sympathetic pathways in spinal cord injury (SCI). This study investigated the capacity of the isolated spinal cord to generate an SSR, and determined the relation between SSR, levels of spinal cord lesion, and supraspinal connections. METHODS Palmar and plantar SSR to peripheral nerve electrical stimulation (median or supraorbital nerve above… CONTINUE READING
