This page covers biological details of component Incertus Nucleus. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Hindbrain Metencephalon -> Pontine Tegmental Nuclei (HT.TG) -> Incertus Nucleus (FAM.HT.TG.NI) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Affective Motivations Area
  • Role: processor.affective
  • Function: Behavioural activation and the response to stress
  • Notes to function: Modulating influences on prefrontal and hippocampal cortical activity, midline behavior control; modulatory nucleus; relay from reticularis pontis oralis nucleus to septo-hippocampal system
