The corticospinal spinal system, one of the most important descending tracts in the central nervous system, has been recognised since the seventeenth century. An accurate delineation of the complete tract, however, is only recently emerging with the advent of functional magnetic resonance imaging, like diffusion-tensor imaging. Serving a number of motor functions essential for our voluntary movements, the exact pathway it follows is of great interest to neurophysiologists, neuroscientists… CONTINUE READING
