Therefore, our present result indicate that in order to reveal the exact functional role of EL in spinal motor and sensory nuclei further study is required to identify the nature of these c-Fos expression (e.g., neurotransmitter, receptors e.t.c.) observed in this study.
The striking anatomical similarity between the cerebellum and the cerebellar-like sensory nuclei is that they share a molecular layer organization in which the apical dendrites of the projection neurons receive input from many thousands of parallel fibers (1, 2).
The cerebellar-like sensory nuclei receive primary afferent input from octavolateralis sensory systems, and relay that activity to midbrain levels.
