Anterior proper fasciculus, fasciculus proprius, or fasiculus proprii (anterior basis bundle) is the remaining fibers of the anterior funiculus.[clarification needed]

It consists of

  • (a) longitudinal intersegmental fibers which arise from cells in the gray substance, more especially from those of the medial group of the anterior column, and, after a longer or shorter course, reënter the gray substance;
  • (b) fibers which cross in the anterior white commissure from the gray substance of the opposite side.
