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

  • Top-down path to region: Hindbrain Metencephalon -> Vestibular Nuclei (LPC.HT.VBN) -> Medial Vestibular Nucleus (LPC.HT.MVBN) (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 head position, integrate head and eye movements; maintain balance, coordinating postural adjustments; coordination for horizontal eye movements
  • Notes to function:
    • to thoracic, bilateral - medial vestibulospinal tract in MLF
    • to CR
    • to oculomotor, trochlear, abducens, accessory oculomotor
