Middle Diencephalon at Basal Ganglia
( << previous section | instructions | next section >> )
 
 

Nuclei:
Diencephalon:
Thalamus:
Medial dorsal (bounded by internal medullary lamina)
Ventroposterior medial (VPM)
Ventroposterior lateral (VPL)
Ventral lateral
Reticular & ext. medullary lamina
Dorsal tier (lateral posterior)
Midline (& massa intermedia)

Epithalamus:
Stria medullaris thalami

Subthalamus:
Subthalamic nucleus
Zona incerta

Basal Ganglia
Lentiform (lenticular)
Putamen
Globus pallidus

Caudate
Body
Tail

Medial temporal lobe & lateral ventricle
Parahippocampal gyrus
Collateral sulcus
Hippocampal fissure

Hippocampal formation (subiculum, dentate gyrus, hippocampus

Lateral ventricle & related structures:
Body of lateral ventricle
Inferior horn of lateral ventricle
Stria terminalis (& vein)
Choroid plexus
Corpus callosum
Fornix, body
Septum pellucidum

Tracts:
a) Prerubral field: (Forel's field H)
Ascending sensory systems - from prerubral field to terminate in adjacent thalamic nuclei
Cerebellar efferents - from prerubral field to enter thalamic fasciculus
Pallidal efferents - enter prerubral field to course in thalamic fasciculus.

b) Additional pathways associated with prerubral field:
Thalamic fasciculus (pallidal efferents and dentatothalamics)
Lenticular fasciculus (pallidal efferents)

c) Other tracts:
Optic tract
Optic radiations:
Sublenticular fibers
Looping fibers
Crus cerebri
Internal Capsule (Post. limb)

Other:
III Ventricle
Roof of III ventricle
