Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The cerebral crus is the anterior portion of the cerebral peduncle which contains the motor tracts, the plural of which is cerebral crura.

In some older texts this is called the cerebral peduncle but presently it is usually limited to just the anterior white matter portion of it.
