  • DELL neuron
Definition: Efferent neurons located ventrally in the diencephalon. The dendrites extend into a large area of the diencephalic neuropil rostral, caudal, lateral and ventral to the cell body. The axon courses dorsally and then caudally through the midbrain. As the axon descends through the brain it gives off branches at several levels. One branch usually exits the brain with the posterior lateral line nerve. The axon can be traced into the cervical spinal cord. (1)
