WOROI: 230 - Mediodorsal thalamic nucleus

Mediodorsal nucleus of the thalamus. It is the main nucleus of the medial nuclear group of the thalamus. It receives input from substantia nigra, the ventral pallidum, olfactory cortex and amygdala according to Heimer, and outputs to prefrontal cortex according to Moos and Møller.

Text contexts

Several brain regions identified by monkey studies as being important for successful DNMS performance showed selective activity during the different phases, including the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus (encoding), ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (retention), and perirhinal cortex (retrieval)Greig I. de Zubicaray; Katie McMahon; Stephen J.
