In the portion of the brainstem beneath the fourth ventricle, the GSA nuclei lie dorsolaterally, whereas the GSE nuclei lie ventromedially. 7). At any given level, SSA and SVA recipient zones tend to lie medial to the GSA nuclei. GVE and SVE nuclei lie medial to the GSE nuclei. 10). One prominent exception to the topographic rule is the facial nucleus-a special visceral efferent nucleus that is found in an unexpected location. 7. Topographic organization ofthe sensory and motor columns of cranial nerve nuclei In the medulla.
