Thus the free-standing cage containing the dorsal column
, the window-like frame from which the skeleton-bird hangs, the suspended pane of glass suggesting simultaneously a connecting corridor, different storeys and a huge skylight, the cage like structure of the entire skeleton-palace, and the impression of a light-filled vaulted space--all have close equivalents in the great iron-frame building, which is lit both by side windows and a skylight stretching almost its full length (Fig.
Cutting other ascending tracts of the spinal cord that run through the dorsal column
could disrupt any of several kinds of sensory signals on their way to the brain.
With dorsal column
spinal cord stimulation, small wires are placed along the midline of the epidural space.

Electrical Stimulation DME include: Dorsal Column
If the DRG is injured, it causes corresponding injury to the dorsal columns
and renders them unusable to modulation by SCS;  any modulation target is then selected 'deeper' to this level, e.
Although cerebellar damage also has to be considered, it is more likely that this patient's balance issues are connected with nerve damage to her dorsal columns
resulting in a loss of proprioception in her feet.
The dorsal columns
carry somatosensory information toward the brain.
Damage to the dorsal columns
results in ipsilateral loss of proprioception and fine touch below the level of the lesion.
Sparing of the dorsal columns
was evident from preservation of deep touch, proprioception and vibration sense in all limbs.
