Cornu posterior

Backhorn of the spinal cord

posterior parts of the gray matter of the spinal cord, a back horn on hay. and one on the left. page. The hind horns contain (among other things) groups of nerve cell bodies, the so-called hindhorn nuclei, which via the hind roots receive different kinds of sensations from the skin, from the musculoskeletal system (i.e. skeleton, joints and muscles) and from the viscera. The hindhorn nuclei then connect the signals in different directions, including to the front horns, to the brain stem and to the small and large brain.
