Pons

Pons in brain

Pons, bridge in Latin, resides in the portion of the hindbrain that connects the cerebral cortex with the medulla oblongata. It also serves as a communications and coordination center between the two hemispheres of the brain. It helps relay messages from the cortex and the cerebellum.

graphic-of-highlighted-pons-brain-areaWithout the pons, the brain would not be able to function because messages would not be able to be transmitted, or passed along. It also plays a key role in sleep and dreaming.

Functions of pons

  • Arousal
  • Controlling Autonomic Functions
  • Relaying Sensory Information Between the Cerebrum and Cerebellum
  • Sleep
  • Regulating breathing and taste.

On Damage
