Nuclei of the Trigeminal nerve (general)
4 Nuclei of the Trigeminal nerve (3 sensory, 1 motor)
Describe the course of CN- V from the point that it emerges from the brainstem to where V1, V2 and V3 leave the cranial cavity
-When the trigeminal nerve emerges from the brainstem, it courses anteriorly through the middle cranial fossa
-From the trigeminal ganglion, located on the floor of the middle cranial fossa, emerges V1, V2 and V3

Organization of the Spinal Trigeminal Nucleus (Subdivisions)
1. Pars Oralis (Oral Nucleus): located most rostral, this nucleus extends from the main sensory nucleus (mid pons) to the pontomedullary junction.
2. Pars Interpolaris (Interpolar Nucleus): located in
middle position, this nucleus extends from the
pontomedullary junction to the level of the obex (the obex marks the caudal end of the fourth ventricle).
3. Pars Caudalis (Caudal Nucleus): located caudally, this nucleus extends from the obex to spinal cord (C2-C3).
