inferior vestibular nucleus

One of the four vestibular nuclei in the special sensory column in the hindbrain. It is lateral to the medial vestibular nucleus. It lies in the floor of the fourth ventricle near the lateral edge, it receives axons from the vestibular ganglia (via the vestibulocochlear nerve (CN VIII)) and from the deep cerebellar nuclei, and it sends axons to the cerebellum.
