Abstract

This chapter reviews the anterograde and retrograde studies of the cells of origin, funicular trajectories, and laminar terminations. Although a considerable amount of efforts are directed toward the study of the descending spinal pathways in mammals and reptiles, both with the older degeneration techniques and the more current horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and autoradiographic techniques. Very little published information is available on the anatomical organization of the descending pathways to the spinal cord in birds. To determine, as completely as possible, the full set of brain structures giving rise to descending spinal projections, several birds received multiple unilateral injections of HRP into the spinal cord at high cervical levels. Some of these cells extend dorsally from nucleus ruber along the midline and are seemingly in continuity with retrogradely labeled cells located in the interstitial nucleus of Cajal situated ipsilaterally to the injection site. The identity of these cells along the midline dorsal to nucleus ruber is unclear, but they may correspond to the prerubral field.
