    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with the appearance of autoreactive T cells in the central
    nervous system. Using a mouse model of MS, Arima et al. now show that this attack begins at
    a specific spinal cord location. T cell entry into the CNS is regulated by a reflex neural circuit
    originating from leg muscle contractions.
