This view is of the sensory columns. We have slipped up, as we said we might, and called the Vestibular and Auditory Nuclei "Special Somatic Afferent". Try to ignore this.

The idea here is just to show that the Nucleus of the Tractus Solitarius is a column (admittedly, a short one) that is present in slides 6 and 11, and that the trigeminal nuclei form a column that extends from the spinal cord (not shown) as far rostrally as slide 13 (and beyond).
