    Hi guys, I'm just a tad confused whilst doing my dissertation.

    Is the 'vomiting centre' a part of, or partly consistent of, the NTS (nucleus tractus solitarius) of the medulla?

    I know that it is not confined to a single area, rather a collection of nuclei.

    One source I read described the vomiting centre as being pat of the NTS. Another said that the NTS signals to the CPG (central pattern generator), which then signals to the vomiting centre (which may include cortical, hypothalamic, and medullary regions).

    I'd really appreciate the help, asap please guys.
    Thanks

    I think I agree with " the NTS signals to the CPG (central pattern generator), which then signals to the vomiting centre (which may include cortical, hypothalamic, and medullary regions)", but then this (from a research paper) is seemingly contradicting the other source (a good, recommended pharmacology text book).
