Autoradiographical tracing results in the cat indicate that the lateral pontine tegmental field projects mainly contralaterally to the marginal layer of the spinal trigeminal nucleus, to laminae I and II and the lateral part of laminae V and VI of the spinal cord and the Edinger-Westphal nucleus. It is pointed out that the projections from the lateral… CONTINUE READING
