The brain and spinal cord

The lining of the spinal cord is called the "Dura". It is not Dura, Dura is a meninge which is the top layer of protective covering for both the brain and the spinal cord. The lining of the spinal cord is called the Endyma, it is derived from a Greek word and you can google the variations. PS: The other two meninges are the Arachnoid which is second and a membrane called Pia mater which surrounds the brain.

The spinal cord ends at the lumbar spinal segments L1/L2 (approximately although there is anatomical differences between individuals). There are however further spinal nerves that run right the way down to the sacrum at the base of the spine however these nerves are not fused together as the cord is and seperate into many strands like a horse's tail hence it's name the cord equina (cord of the horse).
