• nuclei
  • Neuroblasts from the alar plate of the neural tube at this level will produce the sensory nuclei of the medulla. (wikipedia.org)

  • In the medulla, at the dorsal column nuclei, the first order neuron synapses with the second order neuron, which then decussates (crosses over to the other side of the Central Nervous System) into the medial lemniscus. (wikipedia.org)
  • lateral
  • The lower part of the medulla, immediately lateral to the cuneate fasciculus, is marked by another longitudinal elevation known as the tuberculum cinereum . (wikipedia.org)
  • centers
  • The medulla contains the cardiac , respiratory , vomiting and vasomotor centers and therefore deals with the autonomic functions of breathing , heart rate and blood pressure . (wikipedia.org)
  • Both enkephalin and dynorphin peptides and their associated opiate receptors may therefore be involved in the regulation of the activity of the cardiovascular centers of the medulla oblongata. (springer.com)
  • tracts
  • The word bulbar can refer to the nerves and tracts connected to the medulla, and also by association to those muscles innervated , such as those of the tongue , pharynx and larynx . (wikipedia.org)
  • functions
  • Although damage to other parts of the brain can be dealt with accordingly, damage to the medulla is the hardest to fix because of the many important functions that it carries out. (brainmadesimple.com)
  • Not only is it thought to be the seat of the ego, the medulla also functions as the sixth cerebralspinal center and directs the current of cosmic energy throughout the body. (yogapedia.com)

  • respiratory
  • The medulla contains the cardiac, respiratory, vomiting and vasomotor centres dealing with heart rate, breathing and blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • In the present study, the neuronal mechanism of interaction between sciatic and vagal sensory inputs was examined in the rostral ventrolateral medulla oblongata using in vivo intracellular recording and labelling. (gla.ac.uk)
