    Basilar invagination due to a congenital skeletal disorder kinked the brainstem at the ponto-medullary junction causing both auditory nerves to make an acute turn at the porus acousticus. The associated bilateral asynchronous clicking tinnitus responded to carbamazepine.

    Research in animal models implicates the retrotrapezoid nucleus (RTN) as a critical central chemoreceptor located in the brain stem. In rodents, RTN neurons co-express the tachykinin receptor NK1R and the transcription factor PHOX2B. In humans, PHOX2B mutations, which expand a polyalanine tract...
