Overview

The most lateral of the bundles of the anterior nerve roots is generally taken as a dividing line which separates the antero-lateral region into two parts, viz., an anterior funiculus, between the anterior median fissure and the most lateral of the anterior nerve roots; and a lateral funiculus, between the exit of these roots and the postero-lateral sulcus.
