anterior horn n.
The front section of the lateral ventricle of the brain, extending forward from Monro's foramen. Also called ventral horn.
The front or ventral gray column of the spinal cord in cross section. Also called ventral horn.
In one part there was an acute destruction of the anterior horn and an infiltration of round cells.
Some of the cells of the anterior horn were swollen and the nuclei eccentric; chromatolysis had occurred in many of them.
From this synapsis the lower neurone proceeds, its axons travelling to the anterior horn and arborising around the motor cells.
