accessory abducens nucleus
The term accessory abducens nucleus refers to a small cluster of neurons in the pontine reticular formation of the rat ( Swanson-1998 ). Crosby-1962 questioned whether, in the human, it exists independently of the accessory facial nucleus. Functionally it belongs to the somatic motoneuron pools of the subcortical motor system ( Swanson-2004 ).
