intermediodorsal nucleus
The term intermediodorsal nucleus refers to one of four parts of the medial dorsal nucleus in the midline thalamus of the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and the mouse ( Paxinos-2001 ). It consists of cells grouped on the basis of connectivity and function ( Swanson-2004 ). They bridge the midline of the thalamus between other parts of the medial dorsal nucleus of the left and right sides. More developed and consistently present in rodents than in primates ( Crosby-1962 ), it belongs to the polymodal association thalamus in the Functional CNS Model - Rat (see Models Where It Appears below).
