The potency of spinal sympathetic reflexes is increased after spinal injury, and these reflexes may result in life-threatening hypertensive crises in humans. Few, if any, primary afferents project directly to sympathetic preganglionic neurons (SPN). Therefore, spinal sympathetic interneurons (IN) must play a major role in generating dysfunctional sympathetic activity after spinal cord injury. Furthermore, these IN are potentially aberrant targets, either for ascending and descending axons that… CONTINUE READING
