In the human brain, the lateral parabrachial nucleus is one of three nuclei in the parabrachial area, at the junction of the midbrain and pons. It receives information from the caudal solitary tract and transmits signals mainly to the medial hypothalamus but also to the lateral hypothalamus and many of the nuclei targeted by the medial parabrachial nucleus.
