CORTICOSPINAL TRACT

a significant motor tract that begins in the cerebral cortex, continues through the pyramid of the medulla oblongata, and lowers to end in the spinal cord.

CORTICOSPINAL TRACT: "The corticospinal tract in the rabbit seemed to end short of the spinal cord, making researchers question the safety of the vaccine administered to the mother while the young rabbit was inutero."
