Nucl proprius


Nucleus in the middle of the posterior horn of the spinal cord. Present in all spinal cord segments, it is a synaptic center for proprioceptive afferents from the locomotor apparatus. The impulses pass on to the cerebellum via the anterior spinocerebellar tract where they are compared with setpoint values.
