Abstract

The many procedures performed for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia require an extensive knowledge of the brainstem and spinal nuclei anatomy and physiology, their projections, central and peripheral connections, the trigeminal autonomic elements, and autonomic effects of trigeminal injury. Recent advances in the understanding of the anatomy and physiology complex as presented in the neuroscience literature are reviewed.
