Abstract

The paratrigeminal nucleus, a little-studied cell group of the medulla, is the only structure of the brain to significantly increase its relative [14C]2-deoxyglucose accumulation during hibernation in the ground squirrel. The zone of increased activity on the autoradiographs is continuous between this structure and the marginal zone of the spinal trigeminal nucleus. Because of the known thermoafferent function of the latter structure, a similar function is suggested for the paratrigeminal nucleus.
