2. Corneal reflex fibers terminate in the rostral two-thirds of the spinal
trigeminal nucleus.
II. Ascending Trigeminothalamic Tracts
—convey GSA information from the face, oral cavity, and dura mater to the
-consist of chains of three neurons, -have their first-order neurons, which
are pseudounipolar ganglion cells, in
the trigeminal ganglion and in the sensory ganglia of CN VII, CN IX, and
A. Ventral trigeminothalamic tract (Figure 10-2)
-serves as a pain, temperature, and light touch pathway from the face
and oral cavity.
