superior central nucleus raphe
The term superior central nucleus raphe refers to the combination of the median raphe nucleus and the paramedian raphe nucleus in the midline of the pontine reticular formation. The combination is found in the human ( Hornung-2012 ), the macaque ( Paxinos-2009a ), the rat ( Swanson-2004 ), and the mouse ( Franklin-2008 ). Functionally it is part of the behavioral state system ( Swanson-2004 ). (Note that the term 'superior central nucleus' was long used in reference simply to the median raphe nucleus.)
