Pelvic Peripheral Ganglion

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaLAC -> BrainRegionLAC_PN_PSYM_PPG

This page covers biological details of component Pelvic Peripheral Ganglion. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Peripheral Nervous System -> Parasympathetic Ganglia (PNS.PSYM) -> Body Parasympathetic Ganglia (PN.PSYM.BD) -> Pelvic Peripheral Ganglion (LAC.PN.PSYM.PPG) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: parasympathetic ganglion
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Autonomous Control Area
  • Role: parasympathetic.ganglion
  • Function: Sigmoid, rectum, bladder, and external genitalia
  • Notes to function: Pelvic nerve fibers
