spino-olivary tracts
Acronym: spo
The term spino-olivary tracts refers to a number of pathways that originate in the spinal cord and ascend to the olivary nuclei. The anterior spino-olivary tract and the posterior spino-olivary tract are the best defined. Some authors report that the olivospinal tract is, in fact, composed of spino-olivary fibers ( Carpenter-1983; Brodal-1950 ).
