Upper Dorsal Root Ganglion

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaLPC -> BrainRegionLPC_PN_SG_UDRG

This page covers biological details of component Upper 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) -> Upper Dorsal Root Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.UDRG) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: sensory ganglion
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area
  • Role: sensory.ganglion
  • Function: Integration of afferent signaling from cervical and upper thoracic somatic and viscera
  • Notes to function: C1-C8, T1-T6




Component items:

  • Cervical Dorsal Root Ganglia (AVA.PN.SG.DRG.CX): touch/proprioception/vibration sensory pathway
    • Upper Cervical Dorsal Root Ganglia (AVA.PN.SG.DRG.UC): Integration of afferent signaling from meningles, head, neck
    • Lower Cervical Dorsal Root Ganglia (AVA.PN.SG.DRG.LC): Integration of afferent signaling from shoulder, arms
