Structure and functions of the brain stem

  • Henri M. Duvernoy


The structure of the brain stem is first explained from a general view (Fig. 36), principal pathways (Figs. 37 and 38), cranial nerve nuclei (Fig. 39), and reticular formation (Fig. 40), then through a series of 16 axial (horizontal) sections (Figs. 41 to 56) parallel to the bicommissural plane and which can be compared to the axial sections in Figs. 99–127.
