Caudate Nucleus Body

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaFEC -> BrainRegionFEC_FT_CN_BD

This page covers biological details of component Caudate Nucleus Body. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Forebrain Telencephalon -> Basal Ganglia (BGA.FT.BG) -> Striatum (BGA.FT.ST) -> Dorsal Striatum (BGA.FT.DST) -> Caudate Nucleus (BGA.FT.CN) -> Caudate Nucleus Body (FEC.FT.CN.BD) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: nucleus
  • Brain area: Forebrain - Execution Control Area
  • Role: relay
  • Function: Oculomotor learning
  • Notes to function: FEF, SEF
