Here they make synaptic contact with the third neurons, which, in turn, give off the thalamocortical tract; this tract ascends by way of the internal capsule (posterior to the pyramidal tract) and through the corona radiata to the primary somatosensory cortex in the postcentral gyrus. The somatotopic organization of the posterior column pathway is preserved all the way up from the spinal cord to the cerebral cortex (Fig. 19 a). The somatotopic projection on the postcentral gyrus resembles a person standing on his head—an inverted “homunculus” (Fig.

The dorsal root ganglion is macroscopically visible as a swelling of the dorsal root, immediately proximal to its junction with the ventral root (Fig. 4). , they possess a single process that divides into two processes a short distance from the cell, in a T-shaped configuration. One of these two processes travels to the receptor organs of the periphery, giving off numerous collateral branches along the way, so that a single ganglion cell receives input from multiple receptor organs. The other process (the central process) travels by way of the posterior root into the spinal cord, where it either makes synaptic contact with the second sensory neuron immediately, or else ascends toward the brainstem (see Fig.
