2 Medulla Oblongata Nuclei in the medulla are associated w/ autonomic control, cranial nerves, and motor/sensory relay. Nuclei in the medulla are associated w/ autonomic control, cranial nerves, and motor/sensory relay. Autonomic nuclei: Autonomic nuclei: Cardiovascular centers Cardiovascular centers Cardioinhibitory/cardioacceler atory centers alter the rate and force of cardiac contractions Cardioinhibitory/cardioacceler atory centers alter the rate and force of cardiac contractions Vasomotor center alters the tone of vascular smooth muscle Vasomotor center alters the tone of vascular smooth muscle Respiratory rhythmicity centers Respiratory rhythmicity centers Receive input from the pons Receive input from the pons Additional Centers Additional Centers Emesis, deglutition, coughing, hiccupping, and sneezing Emesis, deglutition, coughing, hiccupping, and sneezing

11 Lateral medullary syndrome (Wallenberg's syndrome) This is the commonest of the brain stem strokes. Involvement of the spinothalamic tract results in contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation below the neck. This is the commonest of the brain stem strokes. Involvement of the spinothalamic tract results in contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation below the neck. Involvement of the descending nucleus and tract of V results in loss of pain and temperature sensation on the face ipsilateral to the lesion. Involvement of the descending nucleus and tract of V results in loss of pain and temperature sensation on the face ipsilateral to the lesion.

12 Lateral medullary syndrome Involvement of descending autonomic fibers results in an ipsilateral Horner's syndrome (ptosis, meiosis, and anhidrosis). Involvement of the nucleus ambiguus causes palatal weakness and dysphagia. Involvement of descending autonomic fibers results in an ipsilateral Horner's syndrome (ptosis, meiosis, and anhidrosis). Involvement of the nucleus ambiguus causes palatal weakness and dysphagia. Involvement of the inferior cerebellar peduncle (restiform body) causes ipsilateral ataxia. Involvement of the inferior cerebellar peduncle (restiform body) causes ipsilateral ataxia. Alternating hemianaesthesia Alternating hemianaesthesia

24 Ventromedial Superior Midbrain Syndrome (Weber’s Syndrome) Contralateral Contralateral paralysis of face, arm and leg paralysis of face, arm and leg Ipsilateral Ipsilateral III palsy (fascicular) III palsy (fascicular) Artery Artery paramedian perforators of terminal basilar, or paramedian perforators of terminal basilar, or peduncular perforating branches of posterior cerebral artery peduncular perforating branches of posterior cerebral artery

25 Paracentral (Tegmental) Superior Midbrain Syndromes (Claude’s and Benedikt’s syndromes) Contralateral Contralateral ataxia with tremor (red nucleus) ± hemichorea (subthalamic nucleus) ataxia with tremor (red nucleus) ± hemichorea (subthalamic nucleus) Ipsilateral Ipsilateral III fascicular palsy III fascicular palsy Artery Artery paramedian perforators of terminal basilar, or paramedian perforators of terminal basilar, or interpeduncular branches of Posterior Cerebral Artery interpeduncular branches of Posterior Cerebral Artery

26 Dorsal Superior Midbrain Syndrome (Parinaud’s, of Sylvian Aqueduct) Paralysis of upgaze ± convergence Paralysis of upgaze ± convergence Light/near dissociation Light/near dissociation Eyelid retraction Eyelid retraction Convergence/retraction nystagmus Convergence/retraction nystagmus Artery - posterior choroidal/quadrigeminal Artery - posterior choroidal/quadrigeminal (Note - usually not vascular) (Note - usually not vascular)
