Descripción

The eight spinal nerves spring from the medulla spinalis, and are transmitted through the intervertebral foramina.

The first cervical nerve emerges from the vertebral canal between the occipital bone and the atlas, and is therefore called the suboccipital nerve; the eighth issues between the seventh cervical and first thoracic vertebræ.
