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

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Diencephalon -> Hypothalamus (FD.HT) -> Lateral Hypothalamic Area (LAC.FD.HT.LT) -> Lateral Tuberal Nuclei (LAC.FD.HT.LTUB) -> Tuberomammillary Nucleus (LAC.FD.HT.TBM) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Autonomous Control Area (LAC)
  • Area circuit: Daily Cycle Autonomic Control (LADC)
  • Role: processor.autonomic
  • Function: sole source of histamine in the brain
  • Notes to function:
    • regulate sleep, helps produce responses to sexual stimuli, and helps body respond to stressful situations
