This page covers biological details of component Sublentiform Nucleus. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Midbrain Mesencephalon -> Reflexes Nuclei of Midbrain Mesencephalon (MM.REF) -> Visual Reflexes Nuclei of Midbrain Mesencephalon (MM.REF.VIS) -> Pretectum (MM.PT) -> Sublentiform Nucleus (LRC.MM.PT.SL) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
