Dorsal column medial lemniscal pathway refers to a pathway that carries information pertaining to touch and vibration. It is so named because it is routed up the dorsal aspects of the spinal cord to a white matter tract termed the medial lemniscus that courses through the contralateral side of the brainstem through the medulla , pons, and midbrain to be routed up through the thalamus (ventral posterior nucleus ) and on to the primary somatosensory cortex.
