Abstract

Recently obtained anatomical evidence supports the division of the rat cuneate nucleus (CN) into three rostrocaudal regions, with the middle region receiving a disproportionately greater share of the primary sensory input. The CN in the rat conforms to the basic rostrocaudal CN pattern described in other mammals, including cat, monkey and raccoon.
