A nucleus that possibly relays both somatosensory and auditory information was identified in the well-known autonomic control region in the rostral part of the ventrolateral medulla (RVL) of the cat by four sets of experiments using the WGA-HRP (wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase conjugate) method. First, after injecting WGA-HRP into the dorsal column nuclei (DCN), anterograde and retrograde labeling was found bilaterally within and around a small cluster of medium-sized neurons in… CONTINUE READING
