Lateral Corticospinal Tract
Function: Voluntary, Contralateral control of the skeletal muscle in the limbs, hands and feet.
Ventral Corticospinal Tract
Funtion: Voluntary, Bilateral control of the skeletal muscle for movements of the axial skeleton.
Function: Voluntary contralateral control of the flexor muscles that govern precise movement of the limbs, hand and feet.
Reticulospinal Tract (medullary and pontine)
Function: Ipsilateral, "automatic", control of muscle in proximal portions of the limbs, and contributes to the sensitivity of flexor reflexes.
Vestibulospinal Tract (lateral and medial vestibulospinal tract)
Function: Regulates ipsilateral postural muscle tone (extensors) for maintaining balance in response to head movement.
Function: Contralateral "automatic" control of skeletal muscle that move the head and eyes in response to visual stimuli.
Dorsal column-medial lemniscal pathway: (4-9)
Function: Tactile and kinesthetic sensation
Spinothalamic Tract (4-9)
Function: Pain and temperature sensation
