There are no bones of the spinal cord, itself, though there are bones that surround it. They are called your vertebrae. All of them put together are referred to as the vertebral column and are divided into: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal vertebrae.

The spinal cord is a very delicate structure and its integrity is vital to normal function. The vertebral bones act to protect the spinal cord.

The spinal column refers to the bones (vertebrae) that enclose and protect the spinal cord.

i believe there's 24 bones in the human spinal cord. UPDATED ANSWER by ConnieU: The spine has 33 bones. These are called vertebrea and they surround the spinal cord. i forgot to include sacrum and coccyx

Simplified the spinal cord is a group of neuronal axons that stem from cells located in the brain. The spinal column are the vertebral bones that protect the spinal cord.

The spinal cord is made up of bundles of nerve fibers. It runs down from the brain through a canal in the center of the bones of the spine. These bones protect the spinal cord. Like the brain, the spinal cord is covered by the meninges and cushioned by cerebrospinal fluid.

It is the specific evolutionary purpose of the vertebrae column to protect the delicate spinal cord.

The human spinal cord is protected by the bony spinal column. The spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae. The spinal cord itself is made of neurons, similar to the brain itself.

The spinal cord is like the paint and walls of a house. The spinal cord holds everything together and it can be really dangerous if you break your spinal cord. One way to feel your spinal cord is press down on the back of your neck and you'll feel weirdly shaped bones.

It is a vertebrate as it has a spinal cord and bones

The brain is in your head and the spinal cord runs through the vertebrae (the bones that make up your neck and spine)

Yes, they have a spinal cord under their armor.

Tethered Spinal Cord is a condition where the spinal cord is attached to the spinal column and that causes the cord to become stretched.

The Spine, vertabrae, or The Spinal Cord.

The spinal cord is protected by the vertebral column or spinal column. The vertebral column is a collection of individual bones called vertebrae that encase and protect the spinal cord. The vertebral column is divided into three parts: seven cervical (neck) vertebrae at the top, twelve thoracic vertebrae in the midback, and five lumbar vertebrae in the lower back. Below the lumbar vertebrae, but not protecting the spinal cord, are the sacrum and coccyx (tailbone).

Because the spinal cord is a lot of what keeps you alive. It controls all the basic things you need to survive. If you fall and break your spinal cord you will most likely die. It controls thing like breathing and your heart.

The major bones are the collar bone, spinal cord, and the spine :D <3

There is no spinal cavity . . . the spinal cord runs down the back in the spine bones, or vertebrae, and is enclosed on all sides by the vertebrae bones.

A spinal cord tumor is a benign or cancerous growth in the spinal cord, between the membranes covering the spinal cord, or in the spinal canal. A tumor in this location can compress the spinal cord or its nerve roots.

After puberty our bones fussed, so, our brain power will not work there. but, the bones in our spinal cord never fuss. So it is possible to thiken these bones and increase the gap among these 38 bones. Our spinal cord is somewhat like 'S', so if we do some exercise that straches our spinal cord , so it is possible gaining 2-3 inches height. Brain power also can work here.

The cavities that contain the spinal cord is made up of many bones. The cavities that it passes through are the vertebral canals, or vertebral foramina.

your spinal cord is like a cord that runs down your back inside of your spinal bones that make up your spine, essentially. the spinal cord is attached to your brain, and is like a big nerve. The spinal cord assists the brain by "sending" your brain messages. this is how you know if things are hot or not, it starts are the place being exposed to heat, then travels from the nerve endings, all the way to the spinal cord, which then "sends" the message to the brain, and tells you its hot. That's how it works
