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

  • Top-down path to region: Hindbrain Metencephalon -> Vestibular Nuclei (LPC.HT.VBN) -> Lateral Vestibular Nucleus (LPC.HT.LVBN) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area (LPC)
  • Area circuit: Vestibular Sensory and Motor (AVB)
  • Role: sensory.nucleus
  • Function: controlling body position
  • Notes to function:
    • to sacral, ipsilateral - lateral vestibulospinal tract
