This function is the nearby nucleus tractus solitarius where dopamine and opioid receptors are abundant.
It has recently been suggested that astrocytes attached to the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), in the dorsal hindbrain, are involved in triggering processes that affect gastrointestinal motility during glucose deprivation (38).
5) The presence of NO in certain nuclei involved in cardiovascular regulation such as the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM), (14) nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), (15) and paraventricular nucleus (16) has also been previously shown.
Presynaptically mediated inhibition of norepinephrine and a vagomimetic action at nucleus tractus solitarius are responsible for bradycardia, but no bradycardia was seen in both groups in our study.
Neonatal maternal separation and enhancement of the inspiratory (phrenic) response to hypoxia in adult rats: Disruption of GABAergic neurotransmission in the nucleus tractus solitarius.
Inhibition of the sympathetic nervous system by dexmedetomidine decreases sympathetic tone, mainly by selectively activating the postsynaptic [alpha]2 adrenergic receptors in the central nucleus tractus solitarius, thereby preventing sympathetic neurons in the anterior lateral horn of the spinal cord from transmitting impulses (17).

The neural anatomical pathways for controlling gut functions form a hierarchic four-level integrative organization:[sup][41],[42] the first level is the ENS, including myenteric ganglia, submucous ganglion, and gut glial cells;[sup][43],[44] the second level is prevertebral ganglia regulating peripheral visceral reflex responses;[sup][45] The third level is the ANS in the spinal cord (from T5-L2 sympathetic nerve and S2-S4 parasympathetic nervous system) and brain stem nucleus tractus solitarius and dorsal motor nucleus of VN, which receive and give the origin of afferent and efferent fiber of VN, respectively.
The output from the neurons of respiratory center influences the gain of the afferent and efferent outputs at the nucleus tractus solitarius.
Endogeneus leptin signaling in the caudal nucleus tractus solitarius and area postrema is required for energy balance regulation.

Some of these effects are mediated by the AMPK pathway, which is inhibited by stimulation of GLP1R located in the nucleus of tractus solitarius, parabracheal nucleus, area postrema, hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus, and dorsal medical hypothalamus.
