Connections from the trigeminal nuclei include those to: 1 the sensory cortex and other cortical centres for perception: we know what we are doing; 48 Trigeminal, facial and hypoglossal nerves 2 the limbic system: a habit like this pleases us because our mothers conditioned us to do it when we were children (quite wrongly as it happens since soap is bad for the skin); 3 the reticular formation: it wakes us up; 4 the hypothalamus: vasoconstriction or vasodilatation, according to the temperature of the water.

The arterial supply of the brain stem is from branches of the basilar artery. Blood supply Blood vessels supplying the motor pathways are very important. A vascular lesion affecting any part of the pathway will have devastating effects. This is particularly so in the internal capsule since the same arteries supply not only motor but also neighbouring sensory pathways. A haemorrhage or an occlusion of the striate arteries is likely to affect a large area of the body leading to contralateral sensory and motor signs.
