lateral spinothalamic tract
The term lateral spinothalamic tract refers to a bundle of fibers that originates largely from neurons in lamina I, lamina IV and lamina V of the spinal central gray. The tract ascends in the lateral white column medial to the ventral spinocerebellar tract and merges with the anterior spinothalamic tract in the medulla fo form the spinothalamic tract of the medulla ( Carpenter-1983 ). The lateral spinothalamic tract consists of the lateral spinothalamic tract of the spinal cord and the lateral spinothalamic tract of the medulla.
