INFERIOR OLIVARY COMPLEX This is the largest nuclear group in the brain stem. It consists of a convoluted band of cells that lie dorsal to the pyramid. This nucleus is by far the most characteristic and striking feature of the medulla. Sadly, we know little about inferior olivary function(s), but its very intimate association with the cerebellum suggests it is involved in motor coordination and most likely motor “learning”.
