lateral reticulospinal tract
The term lateral reticulospinal tract refers to a fiber bundle that originates in the gigantocellular nucleus of the medulla and terminates at various levels of the spinal cord. It is composed of the lateral reticulospinal tract of the medulla and the lateral reticulospinal tract of the spinal cord. In the medulla the tract descends ipsilaterally and contralaterally dorsal to the inferior olivary complex and lateral to the dorsal accessory nucleus of the inferior olive. In the spinal cord it descends in the lateral white column ( Hanaway-1998 ).
