• 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)
  • Sensory
  • We have recently shown that sensory vagal and somato-sensory (sciatic nerve) inputs converge in neurons of the rostral ventrolateral medulla oblongata, which was implicated in adjusting visceral activities to changing somatic performances. (gla.ac.uk)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • adrenal
  • Schultzberg M, Lundberg JM, Hökfelt T, Terenius L, Brandt J, Elde RP, Goldstein M (1978) Enkephalin-like immunoreactivity in gland cells and nerve terminals of the adrenal medulla. (springer.com)
  • respiratory
  • The medulla contains the cardiac, respiratory, vomiting and vasomotor centres dealing with heart rate, breathing and blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood
  • We would not be able to live without the medulla because of the myriad of crucial tasks it performs including regulating blood pressure and breathing. (brainmadesimple.com)
