Excellent Clarification, NZ.

I'd 'missed' the gist of Dr. Norman's
post with respect to the OP's query.
So much stated with so few words :-]

[I'd 'presumed' that the OP knew
the Neuroanatomy... so many ways
to 'overlook' what needs to be
stated concisely. ["Groan."]]

[Cheers, Dr. Norman. Shine Brightly.]
