Motor paralysis (when due to a lesion affecting the cerebro-spinal axis) can result, therefore, from any condition which interferes with the motor convolutions of the brain, or the nerve fibres which start from them and are continued as the so-called ‘motor tract.’ The latter aid in all voluntary movements of the extremities. They pass through the following parts successively: (1) The white substance of the cerebral hemispheres ; (2) the corpora striata ; (3) the crura cerebri ; (4) the pons Varolii ; (5) the medulla oblongata; and (6) down the motor columns of the spinal cord.
