The relationship between bone and nervous system has been considered based on clinical observations such as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or ectopic bone formation associated with spinal cord injury. Sympathtic nervous tone has been reported to control both bone formation and bone resorption. Unloading induces bone loss due to an increase in bone resorption and decrease in bone formation. Both of these two arms are shown to be influenced by sympathetic tone. In addition, cannabinoid receptor has been observed to be involved in regulation of bone mass. Psychiatric diseases such as depression has also been suggested to linked to the alteration in the levels of bone mass. These observations together point to importance of the relationship between bone mass and nervous system.
