Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The midline nuclear group (or midline thalamic nuclei) is a region of the thalamus consisting of the following nuclei:

The midline nuclei are often called "nonspecific" in that they project widely to the cortex and elsewhere. This has led to the assumption that the may be involved in general functions such as alerting.[1] However, anatomical connections might suggest more specific functions, with the paraventricular and paratenial nuclei involved in viscero-limbic functions, and the reuniens and rhomboid nuclei involved in multimodal sensory processing.[2]
