Posterior spinocerebellar tract

Name: Posterior spinocerebellar tract
Description: Nerve tract that ascends in the dorsal part of the lateral funiculus and enters the cerebellum via the restiform body. Within the cerebellum, its axons terminate in the ipsilateral hindlimb area of the anterior lobe and in the pyramis and the paramedian lobule predominantly ipsilaterally. Rostrally, it extends to lobules I and II. Afferents from the upper trunk, forelimbs, and the neck to the cerebellum.
Synonym(s): Dorsal spinocerebellar tract, Flechsig's tract
Is part of: Spinocerebellar tract
