This page covers biological details of component Trigeminal 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) -> Trigeminal Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.TRG) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: sensory ganglion
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area
  • Role: sensory.ganglion
  • Function: Integration of external auditory meatus (auricular branch), cranial meninges (meningeal branch), and external surface of tympanic membrane
  • Notes to function: sensory fibers of ophthalmic, maxillary, mandibular nerves to principal trigeminal nucleus
