Face and Upper-Limb Reorganization after Spinal Cord Injury

The somatosensory cortex has the essential role of discerning a number of sensory modalities. Representation of these sensory modalities in somatosensory cortex is highly organized, yet the cellular architecture demonstrates a flexible nature. This ability of the cortex to reorganize has a crucial role after spinal cord injury (SCI). Damage at the spinal cord, particularly the dorsal column, impairs ascending sensory axons involved in sensation.
