Visceral feedback circuits in lower brainstem were elucidated with retrograde tracers by mapping neurons that issue local projections to the general visceral afferent division of the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) and dorsomotor vagal nucleus (DMX) in adult male rats. In study 1, spinal and intramedullary afferents to the visceral-sensorimotor complex (NTS-X) were traced to contiguous populations of cell bodies arranged in cylindrical segmental organization. NTS-X afferents derive from… CONTINUE READING
