lamina VII
Acronym: VII
The term lamina VII refers to a subdivision of the spinal central gray defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture. It occupies the intermediate gray column lateral to lamina X and a variable portion of the anterior gray column depending on which of the spinal segments is involved. It is sandwiched between lamina VI at the base of the posterior gray column and lamina VIII in the anterior gray column. Some of the slender columns of lamina IX are embedded in lamina VII ( Carpenter-1983 ).
