The medulla extends from the spinal cord at the level of the foremen magnum and is located just below the pons and fourth ventricle (Fig 6).[12] The anterior section contains the descending pyramidal tract which contains the lateral and anterior corticospinal tracts. These tracts decussate (except for the anterior tract) in the lower medulla before entering the spinal cord.
