Objective: Most neurodegenerative and some acquired diseases of the central nervous system result in loss of specific subtypes of long distance projection neurons. For example, corticospinal motor neurons are centrally affected by traumatic spinal cord injury, and are the prototypical projection neurons,[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
