Definition - Pons

Pons - part of the metencephalon in the hindbrain. It is involved in motor control and sensory analysis; for example, information from the ear first enters the brain in the pons. It has parts that are important for the level of consciousness and for sleep. Some structures within the pons are linked to the cerebellum, thus are involved in movement and posture
