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

  • Top-down path to region: Peripheral Nervous System -> Sensory Ganglia (PNS.SG) -> Sensory Exteroception Ganglia (PN.SG.SE) -> Jugular Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.JUG) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: sensory ganglion
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area (LPC)
  • Area circuit: Taste Senses (STS)
  • Role: sensory.ganglion
  • Function: Integration of external auditory meatus (auricular branch), cranial meninges (meningeal branch), and external surface of tympanic membrane
  • Comments: CN X, superior ganglion of vagus nerve
  • Notes to function:
    • to Sensory Trigeminal Nucleus
