magnocellular part of the midbrain reticular nucleus
Acronym:
The term magnocellular part of the midbrain reticular nucleus refers to a region of the rat brain located lateral to the periaqueductal gray. It is one of three parts of the midbrain reticular nucleus. The other two are the parvicellular part of the midbrain reticular nucleus and the retrorubral field of the midbrain reticular nucleus. Functionally the magnocellular part is one of six magnocellular nuclei of the midbrain reticular nucleus that belong to the reticular formation (functional) of the subcortical motor system; the parvicellular part and the retrorubral field belong to the behavior control column of the subcortical motor system ( Swanson-2004 ).
