At this level the ascending dorsal and ventral spinocerebellar tracts are joined by the cuneocerebellar tract. This pathway conveys to the cerebellum the same sort of information from the arm that the DSCT conveys from the leg. Note that in this case the central process of the first order neuron enters the cervical cord and ascends in the lateral part of the posterior funiculus to synapse on second order neurons in the accessory cuneate nucleus. Figure 6-16 shows this but does not label the nucleus.
