This study demonstrates a novel rsfMRI application to investigate the spinal cord. We found extensive functional networks in the spinal C1-C4, and they included some unilateral, bilateral and top-down functional connectivity. Future studies will improve spatial resolution and to map connectivity of the entire spinal cord to the brain.
