A correlative approach to human spinal cord injuries (SCI) through the combination of neuropathology and neurophysiology provides a much better understanding of the condition than with either alone. Among the benefits so derived is the wide range of interventions applicable to the restorative neurology (RN) of SCI so that the neurological status of the SCI patient is thereby much improved. The neurophysiological and neuropathological elements underlying these advances are described.
