This page covers biological details of component Central Mediodorsal Nucleus of Thalamus. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Diencephalon -> Thalamus (FD.TH) -> Cognitive Thalamus (FD.TH.CR) -> Mediodorsal Nucleus of Thalamus (FD.TH.MD) -> Central Mediodorsal Nucleus of Thalamus (NCP.FD.TH.MDC) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Conscious Personality Area
  • Role: processor.thalamichigh
  • Function: relay olfactory neocortex to insular integrated neocortex
  • Notes to function: Relay piriform cortex (BA34) to AIC (BA14)
