@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaLPC -> BrainRegionLPC_HL_GR

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

  • Top-down path to region: Hindbrain Myelencephalon -> Myelencephalic Sensory Nuclei (HL.SN) -> Spinal Sensory Nuclei (HL.SS) -> Dorsal Column Nuclei (HL.SS.DCN) -> Gracile Nucleus (LPC.HL.GR) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area (LPC)
  • Area circuit: Lower Body Conscious Sensations (SBL)
  • Role: sensory.nucleus
  • Function: Carry epicritic, kinesthetic, and conscious proprioceptive information from lower body
