Thalamus

Name: Thalamus
Description: Subcortical brain region consisting of paired gray matter bodies in the dorsal diencephalon and forming part of the lateral wall of the third ventricle of the brain. The thalamus represents the major portion of the diencephalon and is commonly divided into cellular aggregates known as nuclear groups.(MeSH).
Is part of: Diencephalon
Abbreviation: Th
Super-category: Regional part of brain

Topography defining Criteria: Lies between the interventricular foramen and th eposterior commissure and extends from the third ventricle to the medial border of the powterior limb of the internal capsule, dorsal to the hypothalamic sulcus (Carpenter, Core Text of Neuroanatomy, 3rd ed., 1985, pg. 44).
