CAUDA

Written by

A tail or a tail-like structure. For example, the cauda equina (‘horse’s tail’) is a collection of nerve roots arising from the lumbar, sacral and coccygeal spinal nerves. The resulting bundle, fancifully resembling a horse’s tail, runs down inside the spinal column until the individual fibres leave through their respective openings.
