Definition Part of ventral nucleus of medial genicula Part of ventral nucleus of medial geniculate body located ventro-medially, first described by Morest (1964; http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1261345/?page=9)in the cat, but also by Clerici and Coleman (1990) in the rat. It is segregated from the adjacent pars lateralis in the rat by brachial axons of the ovoid bundle which encircle and invade the interior of OV (Webster in Paxinos, The Rat Central Nervous System, 1995). os, The Rat Central Nervous System, 1995).
