Posterior Diencephalon at Habenula Nucleus
( << previous section | instructions | next section >> )
 
 

Nuclei:
Diencephalon:
Thalamus:
Pulvinar
Centromedian (outlined by internal medullar lamina)
Ventroposterior medial (VPM)
Ventroposterior lateral (VPL)
Lateral Geniculate

Hypothalamus (Medial, Lateral)

Subthalamus:
Subthalamic nucleus
Zona incerta

Epithalamus:
Habenular nucleus (stria medullaris thalami and habenulointerpeduncular tract)
Pineal body

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)
Ansa lenticularis (pallidal efferents)
Lenticular fasciculus (pallidal efferents)

c) Other tracts:
Optic
Fornix
Mammillothalamic
Mammillotegmental
Crus cerebri
Internal Capsule

Other:
III Ventricle
Lamina terminalis
Roof of III ventricle
