This page covers biological details of component Petrosal 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) -> Petrosal Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.PET) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: sensory ganglion
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area
  • Role: sensory.ganglion
  • Function: Integration of afferent signaling from viscera
  • Notes to function: mucous membranes of pharynx, middle ear, carotid body and sinus, taste sensor on the posterior third of tongue to SOL
