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

  • Top-down path to region: Midbrain Mesencephalon -> Mesencephalic Reticular Formation (MM.RF) -> Mesencephalic Reticular Formation, Medial Column (MM.RF.MED) -> Subcuneiform Nucleus (LRC.MM.SCNF) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Motor Reflex Area (LRC)
  • Area circuit: Gait and Posture Control (LGP)
  • Role: processor.automatic
  • Function: Initiation of gait, feedback control of saccade accuracy
  • Notes to function:
    • contributes to generation of estimate of target or eye position coded in craniotopic coordinates
