Taxonomic definition
Taxonomic definition A cuneate nucleus is a somatosensory nucleus of caudal rhombencephalon [nucleus somatosensorius rhombencephali caudalis ] which is related to the upper part of the body corresponding to the segment T6 [] and above of the spinal cord [medulla spinalis ].
For the Nucleus cuneatus (Cuneate nucleus), the new subdivision into 4 parts by Florence SL, Wall JT, Kaas JH (1989 Somatotopic organization of inputs from the hand to the spinal gray and cuneate nucleus of monkeys. J Comp Neurol 286:48-70) is used, as in Paxinos G, Huang X-F (1995 Atlas of the Human Brainstem. Academic Press, San Diego).
