Centrally, the reticulospinal tract of the motor system [5] and the direct and indirect pathways of the basal ganglia contribute to increased tonic muscle activity [6].
The lateral corticospinal and reticulospinal cords, in particular, are responsible for innervation of the lower urinary tract.

1-3) The efferent pathway of these cold-sensitive preoptic neurons traverses the median forebrain bundle to terminate in the posterior hypothalamus, where axons proceed caudally through the mid-brain dorsolateral to the red nucleus to reach reticulospinal neurons located within the reticular formation of both the pons and medulla.
This patient had previously experienced an ischemic lateral medullary syndrome involving the left trigeminal spinothalamic nucleus and tract and probably also the left reticulospinal tract, with the result that he could no longer shiver on the left side of his body.
Shivering is mediated by the predominantly uncrossed reticulospinal tract.
They do, however, exert an influence over spinal interneurons through the rubrospinal and reticulospinal pathways via the brain stem by means of the red nuclei and reticular formation.
Although stroke often affects motor function via injured supraspinal circuitry, lesion location and size have varied effects on lower-limb function including gait, especially if the pathways from the SMC leading to and through the reticulospinal areas are selectively affected.
At the level of the lesion, descending efferent corticospinal, raphespinal, reticulospinal, and coeruleospinal axons sprout and/or regenerate into the lesion cavity after incomplete contusive SCIs [18,23].
