Anterior Roots

We just learned about the part in the middle of the spinal cord called the Grey Column.

Another part of the nervous system in the spinal column is the Anterior Roots or ventral roots.

These are the nerves that come out of the spinal cord on the anterior, or front side of the spinal cord.
They really are coming out the side of spinal cord, but on the front part of the side.

(from: wikipedia - ventral root of spinal nerve)
