|Brain: Gigantocellular reticular nucleus|
|Latin||nucleus reticularis gigantocellularis|
The gigantocellular nucleus, as the name indicates, is mainly composed of the so called giant neuronal cells.
The gigantocellular nucleus excites the hypoglossal nucleus, and can play a role in the actions of the said nerve .
This nucleus receives connections from the periaqueductal gray, the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus, central nucleus of the amygdala, lateral hypothalamic area, and parvocellular reticular nucleus.
