Individual cells can have axons that project to several of these targets, and the projection is often referred to as the ‘anterolateral tract’ (ALT). Quantitative studies in the rat have shown that there are around 400 ALT neurons in lamina I on each side of the L4 segment and that virtually all of these neurons project as far as the LPb, one third reaching the PAG. However, somewhat surprisingly, less than 5 per cent of those in the lumbar cord project to the thalamus.
