The spinal cord and brain form central nervous system and sensory and motor signals are relayed by spinal cord and processed by brain. Studies have suggested that resting state functional connectivity (rsFC) are fundamental, common feature of the entire nervous system. However, it still remain unknown the correlation between rsFCs within spinal cord and brain. The present study discovered dorsal and ventral resting state networks (RSNs) within spinal cord and sensory-motor RSN within brain. Further, correlation analysis suggest that dorsal and ventral RSNs connected to sensory and motor RSNs respectively.
