The study demonstrates that ventral spinocerebellar tract (VSCT) neurons giving off axon collaterals terminating within the lumbosacral enlargement act on hindlimb motoneurons via premotor interneurons in reflex pathways from muscle afferents. It indicates that VSCT neurons might contribute to motor control by modulating spinal activity in advance of any control exerted via the cerebellar loop.
