The rostral nucleus of the solitary tract (rNST) plays a key role in modulating, organizing and distributing the sensory information arriving at the central nervous system from gustatory receptors. However, except for some anatomical studies of rNST synapses, the neural circuits responsible for this first stage in synaptic processing of taste information are largely unknown. Over the past few years we have used an in vitro brain slice preparation of the rNST to study synaptic processing, and it… CONTINUE READING
