The sensory trigeminal nerve nucleus is the largest of the cranial nerve nuclei, and extends through the whole of the brainstem, midbrain to medulla.

The nucleus is divided into three parts, from rostral to caudal (top to bottom in humans), the mesencephalic nucleus, the chief sensory or pontine nucleus, and the spinal nucleus. There is also a distinct motor nucleus that is medial to the chief sensory nucleus.
