A contralateral motor pathway is a neutral pathway located at the opposite side of the brain. It is on the eighth nerve of the cochlear nucleus.
'contralateral' means 'the other side'. So, if I'm talking about your right shoulder, the left is the contralateral. If I'm talking about your left shoulder, the right is the contralateral.
no, the spleen and gallbladder are contralateral, meaning on opposite sides.
No the gallbladder is superior to the appendix. Contralateral only applies if they were to be opposite ends of each other i.e. the right arm is contralateral to the left leg.
It is the opposite side of the body
No, ipsilateral means on the same side. The spleen and gallbladder are on opposite sides of the body which makes them contralateral.
Contralateral neglect is a disturbance of the patient's ability to respond to stimuli on the side of the body opposite (contralateral) to the side of brain lesion, in the absence of simple sensory or motor deficits. Patients with contralateral neglect often behave as though the left side of their world does not exist and they often fail to appreciate that they have a problem. The disturbance is often associated with large lesions of the right posterior parietal lobe. In one example, Mrs. T acquired contralateral neglect following a massive stroke in the posterior portion of her right hemisphere.
Contralateral means the opposite side to the side being tested. For instance, in audiology, the right ear has a probe inserted but we are actually testing the response that the left is is giving. The opposite of contralateral is ipsilateral meaning the ear with the probe is the ear being tested
No, it is contralateral.
