Parabrachial pigmented nucleus

Name: Parabrachial pigmented nucleus
Description: Nucleus identified in the medial ventral tegmental area that borders the red nucleus and superior cerebellar peduncle dorsally, the medial lemniscus laterally, the subtantia nigra pars compacta and paranigral nucleus ventrally and the rostral linear nucleus and interfascicular nucleus medially. Generally, the largest nucleus in the ventral tegmental area, occupying an average of 50% of the total volume as measured in rat, cat, monkey and human.[1]
Abbreviation: PBP
Is part of: ventral tegmental area
Super-category: Regional part of brain
Id: nlx_144307

Defining Criteria: cyto-architecture
Cyto-architecture defining Criteria: Contains mostly fusiform shaped cells that are oriented medolaterally or around the fiber bundles of the third nerve, as seen in coronal sections. Cells are generally larger than other cells in the VTA. In a comparative analysis of rat, cat, monkey and human, the smallest diameter cells (14 +/- 3 um) were found in rat and the largest in human (29 +/1 10 um) [1]
