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

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Diencephalon -> Thalamus (FD.TH) -> Sensory Thalamus (FD.TH.SR) -> Ventral Posterior Nuclei (NSA.FD.TH.VP) -> Ventral Posteroinferior Nucleus (NCP.FD.TH.VPI) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Conscious Personality Area
  • Role: thalamic.sensory.primary
  • Function: Relays pain and temperature from body to insula
