Segmental innervation

Jump to: navigation, search

Segmental innervation refers to the distribution (innervation) of nerves within an organ or muscle. These nerves are attached to a segment of the spine. [1]

Segmental innervation can be mapped through stimulation of the nerve at the spinal segment. [2]
