He provided in 1822 the name, due to the arching shape of its longest ﬁbres, of the arcuate fasciculus.
The column of Burdach or fasciculus cuneatus, the lateral portion of the dorsal funiculus of the spinal cord is named for him. He differentiated the caudate nucleus from the putamen and identified the globus pallidus and its inner and outer segments.
