During the pharyngeal phase of the swallowing reflex, the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) receives peripheral inputs from the pharynx by means of the glossopharyngeal ganglion and is the location of premotor neurons for the pharyngeal (PH) motoneurons. The semicompact formation of the nucleus ambiguus (AmS) is composed of small and medium-sized neurons that do not project to the pharynx, and large PH motoneurons. We investigated whether the neurons in the NTS projected directly to the PH… CONTINUE READING
