@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaLPC -> BrainRegionLPC_PN_SG_LDRG

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

  • Top-down path to region: Peripheral Nervous System -> Sensory Ganglia (PNS.SG) -> Dorsal Root Ganglia (LPC.PN.SG.DRG) -> Lower Dorsal Root Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.LDRG) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: sensory ganglion
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area (LPC)
  • Area circuit: Lower Body Conscious Sensations (SBL)
  • Role: sensory.ganglion
  • Function: Integration of afferent signaling from lower thoracic and lumbosacral somatic and viscera
  • Notes to function:
    • T7-T12,L1-L5,S1-S5,CX
