Question: A ventral nerve tract brings sensory information into the spinal cord, while a dorsal nerve tract carries motor information from the spinal cord to the peripheral muscles, organs and glands.

Actually, it's the other way around. The dorsal nerve tracts bring sensory information into the spinal cord, while the ventral nerve tracts carry motor information from the spinal cord to the peripheral muscles, organs and glands. Sensory information, such as touch, pain, temperature, and position sense are transmitted to the spinal cord through the dorsal (posterior) nerve tract. After being processed in the spinal cord, the response is sent to muscles or glands through ventral (anterior) nerve tract in order to respond to these stimuli. For example, when you touch a hot object, the pain information is carried to the spinal cord through the dorsal nerve tract and the response, which is to move your hand away, is carried through the ventral nerve tract.
