Definition Nucleus defined on the basis of Nissl stai Nucleus defined on the basis of Nissl stain whose cells are embedded in, and surround the stria terminalis at its rostral extreme, where it splits into multiple bundles directed ventrally toward different parts of the hypothalamus. The nucleus wraps around the anterior commissure. It is bounded laterally by the internal capsule, medially by the lateral septal nucleus and the anterior column of the fornix, and dorsally by the head of the caudate nucleus and the frontal horn of the lateral ventricle. Some authors have expanded the definition on the basis of other stains and connectivity studies to include cell groups distributed through the dorsal part of substantia innominata between the classical nucleus and the amygdala. The extended nucleus of stria terminalis by that definition is classified as part of the extended amygdala ( Olmos-2004 ). The nucleus is found in the human, the macaque, the rat and the mouse.

EditorialNote Neuronames lists this nucleus as a regiona Neuronames lists this nucleus as a regional part of the septal nuclear complex and so we have followed that convention here; however, it may also be considered to be part of the basal forebrain. All of these structural part of relationships will have to be reviewed carefully. nships will have to be reviewed carefully.
