Sample text

It is important to note that there are two thalami, one for each hemisphere of the brain, and these are often connected across the midline by nervous tissue, the massa intermedia (as seen in Figure 6). As has been noted, the third ventricle is situated between the two thalami (see Figure 9 and Figure 20B). The thalamus is usually described as the gateway to the cerebral cortex (see Figure 63). This description leaves out an important principle of thalamic function, namely that most thalamic nuclei that project to the cerebral cortex also receive input from that area — these are called reciprocal connections.

Additional structures of the brainstem are seen from this perspective: • • The dorsal part of the midbrain is seen to have four elevations, named the superior and inferior colliculi (see also Figure 10). The upper ones are the superior colliculi, and they are functionally part of the visual system, a center for visual reflexes (see Figure 41C and Figure 51B). The lower ones are the inferior colliculi, and these are relay nuclei in the auditory pathway (see Figure 38). These colliculi form the “tectum,” a term often used; a less frequently used term for these colliculi is the quadrigeminal plate.

A similar view of the brainstem is used for some of the later diagrams (see Figure 40 and Figure 48).
