The nerves supplying the spinal dura mater were studied in four human foetuses (16–22 weeks) with the acetylcholinesterasein toto staining method. The ventral spinal dura contains a dense, longitudinally oriented, nerve plexus, which receives its contributions from: (I) the sinuvertebral nerves, (II) the nerve plexus of the posterior longitudinal ligament, (III) the nerve plexus of radicular branches of segmental arteries. Dorsal dural nerves are much smaller in number, do not form an evident… CONTINUE READING
