The nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) receives primary visceral afferents and sends projections to other autonomic nuclei at all levels of the neuroaxis. However, it is unknown if distinct populations of NTS neurons project to individual autonomic targets or if individual neurons in the NTS project to multiple autonomic targets. Understanding the basic circuitry of visceral reflex pathways is essential for the analyses of functional central autonomic networks. We examined projections from the NTS… CONTINUE READING
