dorsal part of the medullary reticular nucleus
Acronym:
The term dorsal part of the medullary reticular nucleus refers to the more dorsolateral of two parts of the medullary reticular nucleus in the human ( Paxinos-2012 ), the macaque ( Paxinos-2009a ), the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and the mouse ( Hof-2000 ). The other is the more ventromedial ventral part of the medullary reticular nucleus ( Swanson-2004 ).
     Many authors consider the transition zone between the dorsal and ventral parts to be a separate structure, a caudal extension of the intermediate reticular nucleus, which separates the gigantocellular nucleus and the parvicellular reticular nucleus more rostrally ( Paxinos-2012; Paxinos-2009b; Paxinos-2009a; Hof-2000 ).
     Functionally the medullary reticular nucleus belongs to the reticular formation (functional) of the subcortical motor system ( Swanson-2004 ).
