lamina VIII
Acronym: VIII
The term lamina VIII refers to a subdivision of the spinal central gray defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture. Located in the anterior gray column of the spinal cord, it varies in size. In the cervical enlargement and lumbar enlargement it occupies only the medial part of the column; at other levels it extends across the entire width of the column. It is bounded by lamina VII posterolaterally, and slender columns of lamina IX are embedded in it ( Carpenter-1983 ).
