Diagram of the principal fasciculi of the spinal cord. (Dorsal spinocerebellar fasciculus visible at center left.)

The dorsal spinocerebellar tract (posterior spinocerebellar tract, Flechsig's fasciculus, Flechsig's tract) conveys proprioceptive information from the body to the cerebellum.

It is part of the somatosensory system and runs in parallel with the ventral spinocerebellar tract.

This tract involves two neurons and ends up on the same side of the body.
