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

  • Top-down path to region: Peripheral Nervous System -> Sensory Ganglia (PNS.SG) -> Sensory Interoception Ganglia (PN.SG.SI) -> Nodose Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.NOD) (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 afferent signaling from viscera
  • Comments: CN X, inferior ganglion of vagus nerve
  • Notes to function:
    • caudal SOL - larynx, trachea, gut, and aortic arch receptors
    • rostral SOL - taste receptors of posterior oral cavity
