Dorsal components of the striatum comprising the caudate nucleus and the putamen, in species that have distinct nuclei; the caudoputamen in species which don't. [ NLXANAT : 1010001 ]
- Dorsal components of the striatum comprising the caudate nucleus and the putamen, in species that have distinct nuclei; the caudoputamen in species which don't.
- According to BrainInfo it is a part of the basal ganglia comprising the globus pallidus and striatum
- According to the 1917 version of Gray's Anatomy, it is the combination of the lentiform nucleus (putamen and the globus pallidus) and the caudate nucleus
- It may also refer to both the basal ganglia and the internal capsule collectively.
- The term dorsal striatum refers to a composite structure of the endbrain that is defined in the striatopallidal system by connectivity and neurochemical staining. It includes most of the striatum ( Heimer-1995 ). The boundary between this structure and the ventral striatum is indistinct in sections stained for Nissl substance.
- It may also refer to the putamen and caudate collectively.
- striatum dorsal region
- striatum dorsale
