Dorsal trigeminal tract
|Brain: Dorsal trigeminal tract|
The dorsal trigeminal tract (dorsal trigeminothalamic tract, or lemniscus) is a tract which receives signals from Meissner's corpuscles and Pacinian corpuscles. It mediates pressure and tactile discrimination sensation. This tract arises from Principal trigeminal nucleus and terminates in the contralateral VPM nucleus of the thalamus.
