The spinocerebellar tract carries unconscious proprioceptive information from peripheral receptors (muscle spindles, Golgi tendon organs and joint capsules), through the spinal cord and brainstem to the cerebellum.
The posterior (or dorsal) spinocerebellar tract carries proprioceptive information from the lower limb and trunk. The cuneocerebellar tract is the upper limb equivalent of the posterior spinocerebellar tract.
The anterior (or ventral) spinocerebellar tract is involved in carrying proprioception from the lower limb.
