CytoDefiningCriteria Distinguished by dendritic branching patte Distinguished by dendritic branching patterns in Golgi impregnated material. Medial division is characterized by neurons with both tufted and radiate patterns. In Nissl stains, characterized by the largest perikarya compared to other divisions. See

Definition Medial division of the medial geniculate b Medial division of the medial geniculate body, originally described by Morest (1964) in cats but also found in rats (Paxinos, 1995). In cats, it occupies the ventro-medial quadrant, extending into the fibers of the brachium of the inferior colliculus and adjoining the ventral thalamic nucleus antero-medially. ventral thalamic nucleus antero-medially.
