Pontine nuclear complex

Name: Pontine nuclear complex
Description: Nuclei in the basal pons, intermingled among the descending axons from the cortex, that receive neocrotcial input and give rise to many axons that cross the midline to enter the contralateral cerebellum (Butler and Hodos, Comparative Vertebrate Neuroanatomy, 2nd ed., 2005, pg 135)[1]
Synonym(s): pontine gray, pontine nuclei, pontine nucleus
Abbreviation: Pn
Is part of: Basal part of pons
Super-category: Regional part of brain
Id: birnlex_1516
Organism: Mammal
