What are the 3 ascending somatic sensory pathways and what information do they carry?
- 1. Spinothalamic pathway: from spine to thalamus, sensation of crude touch, pressure, pain, and temp
- 2. Posterior column pathway: from spine to thalamus, sensation of fine touch, pressure, vibration and proprioception
- 3. Spinocerebellar pathway: from spine to cerebellum, proprioreceptive information about position of joints, tendons and skeletal muscles
