The ascending pathway (Spinothalamic tract) in the second order neurons, what perceptions does it carry?
- describe its physical layout in the SC and brainstem
- describe its modulation
- electrical stimulation of spinal nerve roots will result in..
Major carrier of temperature and pain, but is not the only pathway for it
Ascends the entire length of the cord and the brainstem In the brainstem, separates to terminate in different thalamic and brainstem nuclei.
Capable of excitatory and inhibitory modulation.
Electrical stimulation of spinal nerve roots results in inhibition.
