lateral corticospinal tract
The term lateral corticospinal tract refers to a subdivision of the corticospinal tract in the spinal cord. It is formed as 75 to 90% of the corticospinal fibers cross to the opposite side of the brainstem in the pyramidal decussation. This tract descends the length of the spinal cord in the lateral white column ( Carpenter-1983 ).
