Dorsal Root

We just learned about the anterior roots that are on the front part of the spinal nerve.

The nerves that come out the back side of the spinal nerve are the Dorsal Roots.
Dorsal means the top or backside, like a dorsal fin of the dolphin.

(from: wikipedia - dorsal root of spinal nerve)
