ventromedial nucleus of the thalamus
The term ventromedial nucleus of the thalamus refers to a substructure of the ventral group of the dorsal thalamus defined on the basis of connectivity and function in the rat ( Swanson-1998 ) and in the mouse ( Paxinos-2001, Hof-2000 ). (See Models Where It Appears below). It is equivalent to part of the ventral nuclear group lateral to the submedial nucleus in the classical segmentation of the thalamus.
