• 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)
  • 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)
  • These tracts transport motor signals that originated in the precentral gyrus and travelled through the internal capsule to the medulla oblongata and pyramids. (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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • contains
  • Besides forming the major pathway for nerve impulses entering and leaving the skull, the medulla contains centres that are responsible for the regulation of the heart and blood vessels, respiration, salivation, and swallowing. (oup.com)
