Ascending spinal-thalamic tract refers to a part of human anatomy that carries sensory information related to pain and temperature and runs in parallel to the spinal cord. It synapses over a wide region of the thalamus, primarily on the intralaminar and ventral posterior nuclei of the thalamus, and then to the somatosensory cortex.
