The veins, internal jugular and external jugular, appear white with MRI imaging; the common carotid © 2006 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC Atlas of Functional Neutoanatomy artery appears dark because of the rapid flow of blood in the arteries; note the presence of the vertebral artery (dark) in the foramen in the transverse process. CLINICAL ASPECT Any abnormal protrusion of a vertebra or disc could be visualized, as well as tumors within the vertebral canal or of the cord itself (see also Figure 3).

Parasympathetic preganglionic neurons are located in the sacral area and do not form a separate horn (as shown in the illustration). This region of the spinal cord in the area of the conus medullaris (the last of the three lower illustrations) controls bowel and bladder function, subject to commands from higher centers, including the cerebral cortex. The parasympathetic control of the organs of the thorax and abdomen comes from the vagus nerve, CN X, a cranial nerve (see Figure 6 and Figure 8A).

Not only does this assist in understanding the neuroanatomy of this region, but this knowledge is critical in determining the localization of a lesion of the brainstem region (discussed further in Section C of this atlas). A lesion of the brainstem is likely to interrupt either one or more sensory or motor pathways as they pass through the brainstem. Because of the close relationship with the cerebellum, there may be cerebellar signs as well. ADDITIONAL DETAIL Structures belonging to the cerebellum are explained in Figure 54–Figure 57.
