Structure (pathway) through which sensory nerves enter the 'back' of the spinal cord.
The fiber bundle containing incoming (afferent) sensory axons entering the spinal cord at each vertebral segment.
The dorsal root links each spinal nerve with its segment of the spinal cord (part of the white matter).
Contains sensory axons only, relaying pain, temperature and touch information from the body into the central nervous system. The cell bodies of these axons are in the dorsal root ganglion.
The sensory branch of a spinal nerve that connects with the spinal cord.
Bundles of nerve fibres as they enter the spinal cord, carrying sensory information. The cell bodies of the sensory neurons lie in the dorsal root ganglion, a swelling of the dorsal root just outside the spinal cord.
The collection of nerves entering the dorsal section (on the back) of a spinal cord segment.
Bundle of nerve fibers taking information into the spinal cord.
a bundle of nerve fibers that bring information to the spinal cord.
In anatomy and neurology, the dorsal root (or posterior root) is the afferent sensory root of a spinal nerve.
