Title: Assessing human spinal cord function non-invasively

Abstract: The spinal cord is the first part of the central nervous system where somatosensory and nociceptive information is processed and accordingly plays a substantial role in both acute and chronic forms of pain. While there is thus a clear incentive to investigate this structure in humans, assessing spinal cord function non-invasively comes with several unique obstacles. I will describe the approaches we have taken to address these challenges, focusing on fMRI data as well as electrophysiological work, which together aim to provide a spatiotemporal window into this under-explored part of the human central nervous system.
