1] It has been reported that WD may occur in the 1st week after stroke (at the earliest), and that corticospinal tracts are commonly involved.
Besides the aforementioned possible involvement of the corticospinal tract on the unaffected side, a primate experimental study demonstrated the existence of a nerve pathway called the C3-C4 propriospinal neuronal pathway on the ventral aspect of the lateral funiculus that projects onto the C6-C7 motorial nucleus [16].
Morphology criterion: Impaired motor conduction of the corticospinal tracts by tracking changes in the pattern and duration of MEP waveform morphology.

Pyrimidal corticospinal tract educational aid was designed to fulfill the above objectives with the use of three dimensional model and computer aided animation mimicking the conduction of nerve impulses along the motor pathway.
The most common finding in ALS is hyperintensity of the corticospinal tract.
Three dimensional visualization of the white matter fibers such as corticospinal tract, optic radiation and arcuate fasciculus with relationship to high grade gliomas is helpful, and when used routinely in neuronavigation surgery of high grade glioma does not increase the length of surgery neither increase the neurological deficit rate despite the increased resection in both eloquent and non eloquent areas.
15) Fiber tractography has the potential to delineate the corticospinal tract from the cerebral peduncle in the brainstem through the internal capsule to cerebral cortical gyri based on the multiple-ROI technique.
In humans, the corticospinal tract extends from the cerebral cortex in the upper brain down into the spinal cord.
In the present study a hemi-transection of the corticospinal tract was made in rats and Inosine was administered to the motor cortex that gave rise to the transected fibers.
Study Number One Published in Neuroscience Letters ("Electrical Stimulation of the Medullary Pyramid Promotes Proliferation and Differentiation of Oligodendrocyte Progenitor Cells in the Corticospinal Tract of the Adult Rat" [online May 2010]), this study provided the first in vivo demonstration in the adult CNS showing that electrical stimulation can selectively promote proliferation, or rapid increase, and development of myelinating cells.
