Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The dentatothalamic tract (or dentatorubrothalamic tract) is a tract which originates in the dentate nucleus and follows the ipsilateral superior cerebellar peduncle, decussating later on and reaching the contralateral red nucleus and the contralateral thalamus.

The term "dentatorubrothalamocortical" is sometimes used to emphasize termination in the cerebral cortex.
