Hi,

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.
