This page covers biological details of component Ventral Putamen. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Telencephalon -> Basal Ganglia (FEC.FT.BG) -> Striatum (FEC.FT.ST) -> Ventral Striatum (FEC.FT.VST) -> Ventral Putamen (FEC.FT.PU.VT) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Execution Control Area
  • Role: basal.ganglia.pallidum
  • Function: Evaluation of flavors, taste, motivation loop
