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

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Diencephalon -> Hypothalamus (FD.HT) -> Anterior Hypothalamus Area (LAC.FD.HT.AHT) -> Chiasmatic Area (LAC.FD.HT.CHS) -> Supraoptic Nucleus (LAC.FD.HT.SO) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Autonomous Control Area (LAC)
  • Area circuit: Autonomic Motivations Control (LAM)
  • Role: processor.autonomic
  • Function: Blood volume or blood pressure, vasopressin release




Component items:

  • Principal Anterior Division of Supraoptic Nucleus
  • Tuberal Supraoptic Nucleus
