Psychiatry related information on Spinocerebellar Tracts

  • Extracellular recording experiments combined with juxtacellular application of glutamate were then performed on 20 antidromically identified dorsal spinocerebellar tract and spinoreticular tract neurons in the chronic intact cat as a function of sleep and wakefulness [1].

High impact information on Spinocerebellar Tracts

  • N13b (bipolar) and P14 far-field (noncephalic reference) appeared to originate in the cuneate nucleus or spinocerebellar tracts as well as in the medial lemniscus [2].
  • Dorsal spinocerebellar tract neurons are not subjected to postsynaptic inhibition during carbachol-induced motor inhibition [3].
  • It is concluded that serotonin has a postsynaptic action on dorsal horn spinocerebellar tract cells and that this action is mediated through conventional synapses [4].
  • Dystonia musculorum (dt(J)/dt(J)) mutant mice suffer from a degeneration of spinocerebellar tracts as well as a dystrophy of peripheral sensory tracts [5].
  • The evidence suggests that substance P may influence the activity of a subpopulation of dorsal horn spinocerebellar tract cells by acting through neurokinin-1 receptors [6].

Anatomical context of Spinocerebellar Tracts


Associations of Spinocerebellar Tracts with chemical compounds

  • Effects of serotonin on dorsal horn dorsal spinocerebellar tract neurons [8].
  • The glutamate-evoked activity of a group of 10 sensory tract neurons (seven dorsal spinocerebellar tract, three spinoreticular tract), which exhibited a significant decrease in their spontaneous spike activity during active sleep, was examined [1].
  • In this respect the SRCP differs from the ventral spinocerebellar tract (VSCT) which is maximally active in the flexor phase of the cycle [9].
  • The fasiculus gracilis and dorsal spinocerebellar tracts were affected only in the rostral cervical cord while the lateral cortico spinal tract was principally involved in the lower thoracic and lumbar cord [10].
  • The human dorsal spinocerebellar tract (DSCT) was evaluated morphometrically in 14 control cases of different age and sex using semithin sections of epon-embedded cross sections from the C3, T5, and T10 segments of the spinal cord [11].
