Olfactory tubercle

Name: Olfactory tubercle
Description: Region in the ventral telencephalon, prominent in rodents, but present in all mammals, consisting of a laminated cortical part and the cap/hilus region. It is traditionally viewed as part of the olfactory cortex but recognized by some as having a striatal character. According to many authors, the structure of the OT transitions from cortical like to striatal like along the lateral medial axis. (Maryann Martone)
Synonym(s): anterior perforated space, anterior perforated substance, Tuberculum olfactorium
Abbreviation: OT, Tu
Is part of: Telencephalon, Olfactory system, Ventral striatum, Olfactory cortex
Super-category: Regional part of brain
*Id: nlx_143578
