This page covers biological details of component Basilar Pontine Nuclei. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Hindbrain Metencephalon -> Cerebellar Complex (LLC.HT.CRC) -> Basilar Pontine Nuclei (LLC.HT.BPN) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Locomotion Control Area (LLC)
  • Area circuit: Cerebrocerebellar Locomotion (LLC)
  • Role: processor.autonomic
  • Function: convey information from motor cortex to cerebellum regarding intended movements of contralateral arm and leg
  • Notes to function:
    • receive neocortical input and give rise to many axons that cross the midline to enter the contralateral cerebellum
