MOTOR PATHWAY

is the neural pathway or neural tissues which descend through the spinal cord from the brain or brainstem which then control the function and excitation of the motor neurons.

MOTOR PATHWAY: "The motor pathway maps the entire journey which an impulse could take from the brain or brainstem to the muscle or gland."
