The centers influence not only the muscular combinations concerned in volitional movements, but also the functions of vascular innervation, secretion, and the like, which have their proximate centers in the spinal cord. The latter is connected by numerous afferent and efferent tracts with the cerebellum and cerebral ganglia. It is noteworthy that there is in the thoracic and lumbar regions a ganglion of each chain corresponding with great regularity to each spinal nerve, though in the cervical region many of them appear to be missing.
