Medulla oblongata

Name: Medulla oblongata
Description: The lower portion of the hindbrain and brainstem located between the pons and spinal cord. This structure contains several descending and ascending tracts, lower cranial nerve nuclei, a significant proportion of the reticular system of the brainstem and other structures (adapted from NCI Thesaurus).
Synonym(s): myelencephalon, medulla
Is part of: Hindbrain, brainstem
