Definition Large neuron located in the octopus cell a Large neuron located in the octopus cell area of the posterior division of the ventral cochlear nucleus (called dorsal tail of the ventral cochlear nucleus by Cajal and nucleus interfascicularis by Lorente de No), whose dendrites emanate from one side of the cell body, giving them a shape reminiscent of an octopus. ng them a shape reminiscent of an octopus.
EditorialNote I can't track down the reference to the nu I can't track down the reference to the nucleus interfascicularis. The reference given doesn't mention the nucleus and according to Brain Info, there are two nuclei, one in the midbrain tegmentum and one associated with the hypoglossal nucleus, that go by that name. Needs clarification that go by that name. Needs clarification
