At the basic neuroscience level, contributions to this Annals volume address genetic programs that determine the functional identity of spinal neurons, synaptic and intrinsic mechanisms that regulate locomotion and pain, and the neuronal networks for processing sensory inputs and generating motor outputs. At the translational neuroscience level, recent approaches to understand and therapeutically modify spinal network responses to pain and injury are discussed. The volume is the result of one of the very few regular meetings dedicated to increasing our awareness of the importance of the spinal cord in coordinating systemic and autonomic functions. Contributions cover a wide range of topics from genetic, synaptic, and cellular mechanisms underlying network development and functions to plasticity and regeneration following spinal cord injury.
