FIGURE 7.4

Circuit of the rNST that incorporates convergent input from both the VIIth and IXth nerves onto both projection and local circuit neurons. The projection neuron connects to either or both rostral brain areas as well as brainstem reflex connections. Filled black = projections from VIIth nerve; open = projection from IXth nerve.
