Caudomedial Nidopallium +Receives projections from Field L and projects to the caudomedial mesopallium.
Corticotectal tract +The corticotectal tract originates in visual association areas 18 and 19 and terminates in the superior colliculus and other nuclei in the midbrain tectum (Strominger et al., 2012, Noback's Human Nervous System, Seventh Edition: Structure and Function).


Entorhinal cortex of RHA11 +The entorhinal cortex is hodologically defined by axonal projections from layer II neurons to the dentate gyrus of the hippocampal formation.


Field L +Field L receives inputs from the nucleus ovoidalis and projects to caudomedial nidopallium.


Insula +Receives connections from sensory thalamic nuclei, reciprocal connections with amygdala, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, frontal lobe, basal nuclei, striatum


MP2009 extreme capsule +The extreme capsule was delineated by carrying out fractional anisotropy (FA) and volume measurements and tracing its trajectory in five normal adult subjects using tractography
Matrix compartment of neostriatum +Differentially high staining for acetycholinesterase and calbindin-D28K


Nucleus centrobasalis +Following dorsal rhizotomy, the centrobasilar territory was distinguished by massive numbers of degenerated fibers stained by the Nauta technique or its variants.


Optic chiasm +optic nerve, optic tract
Orbital frontal cortex +Defined as the part of the prefrontal cortex that receives projections from the magnocellular, medial nucleus of the mediodorsal thalamus


Postsubiculum +Very weak projection to the anteroventral Very weak projection to the anteroventral nucleus, compared to the presubiculum. A strong projection to the lateral dorsal nucleus of the thalamus, compared to the parasubiculum which does not project to this nucleus. Postsubiculum projects to retrosplenial cortex, primarily Rgb, while presubiculum has only a light projection to Rga and none to Rgb. All 3 subdivisions of subicular complex project to entorhinal cortex, but postsubiculum fibers terminate in layers IV-VI. ubiculum fibers terminate in layers IV-VI.


Ventral tegmental area +The VTA sends information to various brain The VTA sends information to various brain regions along five pathways: mesolimbic, mesocortical, mesostriatal, mesodiencephalic and mesorhombencephalic. The mesolimbic and mesocortical fibers are dopaminergic, project through the medial forebrain bundle and are the major output pathways of the VTA . The mesolimbic pathway innervates the nucleus accumbens and olfactory tubercle, as well as the amygdala and hippocampus. The mesocortical pathway projects to motor, sensory, limbic and polysensory association cortices, sending the most marked input to cingulate, orbitofrontal and prefrontal cortices. The VTA also sends a minor dopaminergic projection along the mesostriatal pathway. The mesorhombencephalic and mesodiencephalic are largely non-dopaminergic, with the former contacting the cerebellum and inferior olive, and the latter projecting to several thalamic and hypothalamic nuclei. several thalamic and hypothalamic nuclei.
Visual cortex primary +Receives projections from the dorsal nucleus of the lateral geniculate body
