     ventrolateral neuropils
Name:  wedge  Find neurons innervating here 
Abbreviation:  WED
Alternative names:   
Description:  It is a component of the VLP and is an aglomerular area extending ventrally down to the level of GNG. It receives mechanosensory inputs from the AMMC located ventrally to the IVLP. (Note: the region has previously been called the "inferior ventrolateral protocerebrum", "caudal ventrolateralprotocerebrum", or "ventral protocerebrum (VPC)", but because it is not yet proven whether the region belongs to the protocerebral neuromere, we here employ a neuromere-free term wedge.)
