The rostral spinocerebellar tract is a tract which transmits information from the golgi tendon organs of the cranial half of the body to the cerebellum.[1] It terminates bilaterally in the anterior lobe of the cerebellum after travelling ipsilaterally from its origin in the cervical portion of the spinal cord.[2][3] It reaches the cerebellum partly through the brachium conjunctivum (superior cerebellar peduncle) and partly through the restiform body (inferior cerebellar peduncle).[3]
