Thefasciculus solitarius extends from the upper border of the medulla to the level of thelower limit of the decussation of the fillet and is related to the sensory fibres of threenerves. The first of these, the facial, contributes only a limited number of fibres thatoccupy the uppermost part of the bundle ; the second, the glosso-pharyngeal, forms byfar the largest constituent of the fasciculus ; whilst the third, the vagus, adds fibresthat course within the lowest segment of the tract..
