The pons appears as a rounded bulge on the underside of the brain stem and separates the midbrain from the enlarged continuation of the spinal cord. Several nuclei of the pons relay information from the ear, face and teeth as well as signals that move the jaw, adjust facial expressions, and produce some eye movements.
