propriospinal

pro·pri·o·spi·nal

(prō'prē-ō-spī'năl),
Relating especially or wholly to the spinal cord; specifically, denoting those nerve cells and their fibers that connect the different segments of the spinal cord with each other (for example, spinospinalis).

propriospinal

(prō″prē-ō-spī′năl) [″ + spina, thorn]
Concerned exclusively with the spinal cord.

Besides the aforementioned possible involvement of the corticospinal tract on the unaffected side, a primate experimental study demonstrated the existence of a nerve pathway called the C3-C4 propriospinal neuronal pathway on the ventral aspect of the lateral funiculus that projects onto the C6-C7 motorial nucleus [16].

Propriospinal myoclonus: a neurophysiology analysis.
It has been proposed that a noxious stimulus can activate various antinociceptive mechanisms, such as diffuse nocicep tive inhibitory control (DNIC) (18), propriospinal antinociceptive responses (19) and descending modulatory system (20) ; however, the action of calcium channels blockers, [beta]-adrenergic blockers and digoxin on these antinociceptive mechanisms has not been extensively analysed.
2008): Task Dependent Modulation of Propriospinal Inputs to Human Shoulder.
A recent study reported that after midthoracic dorsal hemisection, the corticospinal tract collaterals of the hind limb sprout into the cervical gray matter where they contact descending propriospinal neurons and a new intraspinal circuit is formed [22].
Electromyography (EMG): An EMG of the muscles typically shows the duration and frequency of the myoclonic bursts, and whether these bursts spread to other spinal segments (as is seen in propriospinal myoclonus).
