Medical Definition of Nucleus ruber

1. A distinctive oval nucleus (pink in fresh specimens because of an iron-containing pigment in many of the cells) centrally placed in the upper mesencephalic reticular formation. It receives fibres from the deep cerebellar nuclei and cerebral cortex and projects fibres to the cerebellum, brainstem, spinal cord, and probably to the thalamus. The nucleus is divided into two regions: pars magnocellularis and pars parvocellularis. (12 Dec 1998)
