External lateral parabrachial nucleus: where it is located?

    I have an assignment for school where I am supposed to draw a diagram of the brain and label some areas. However, I am having trouble locating the external lateral parabrachial nucleus (PBel) as well as the Dorsal lateral parabrachial (PBdl) (which I assume are in the same general area). Is it located in the brain stem? where specifically?

    Any help would be greatly appropriated. Thanks for your time.

    Hi B.H! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    Always try a google image search (in this case, search for "parabrachial nucleus"). :wink:

    (for your other thread, search for "pons brain", and try http://www.imaios.com/en/e-Anatomy/Head-and-Neck/Brain-diagrams )
