The Dorsal Motor Nucleus of Vagus (DMV) is degenerated in many patients with early stage Lewy Body Diseases (LBD). Many patients with LBD also develop symptomatic autonomic dysfunction prior to motor and cognitive symptoms. The DMV, along with the Nucleus Ambiguous (NA) and Raphe Obscurus (RO) regulates a variety of autonomic reflexes, suggesting that there may be an association between the degree of neurodegenerative protein aggregation in the DMV and symptomatic autonomic dysfunction in… CONTINUE READING
