Ventral Spinocerebellar Tract

Thursday, May 17, 2012

The ventral spinocerebellar tract, also known as Gowers' column, is a bundle of myelinated axon fibers in the spinal cord which connects the body's periphery with the cerebellum, carrying sensory information. Running side by side with the dorsal spinocerebellar tract, along the spinal cord, Gowers' column lies on the anterior-lateral side of the spinal cord, being part of the white matter that surrounds the grey H-shaped grey matter.
