Yeah....it's actually in the dorsal surface of the medulla......just around the fourth ventricle which is the only portion of the CNS devoid of blood brain barrier.......as in this portion CTZ is situated so any chemical stimuli can easily trigger the zone resulting in vomiting. You can get a good view of that in Netter's atlas of Human Anatomy---
