Caption: This image highlights the extensive network of nerves that supply the perimeter of the lumbar disc. In the central portion of this image the lumbar disc has been removed. Remnants of small 'hair-like' projections are noted in the outer portion of where the disc was previously located. The top part of the bone endplate is the circular structure below these smaller nerves. The large anterior longitudinal ligament is noted to the left of the image and consists of parallel collagen fibres. In the foreground the spinal nerve root is seen to the right exiting the neuroforamen and dividing into the dorsal rami and ventral rami. Small muscles can be seen to the far right of the image.
