The aim of the project was to map connections of the reticular formation and of the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) that are involved in lingual and orofacial motor activity, swallowing, and salivation. These connections were established in a mouse model using injections of the neuroanatomical marker cholera toxin subunit B (CTb) placed into specific sites in the medulla.
