The results from several experimental approaches lead to the following conclusions. The nucleus cuneiformis projects to at least lumbar levels of the spinal cord. Its axons course through the ipsilateral sulcomarginal and ventral funiculi to distribute within lamina VIII and adjacent portions of lamina VII. Neurons within the nucleus reticularis pontis (RP), particularly within more medial parts of the nucleus, project through comparable routes to the same laminae. In addition, however, neurons… CONTINUE READING
