Intracerebellar deep cerebellar nuclei

Cerebellar Nuclei

The brainstem is presented from the anterior perspective, with the cerebellum attached as in Figure 6, Figure 7, Figure 8A, and Figure 8B . This diagram shows the intracerebellar nuclei also called the deep cerebellar nuclei within the cerebellum. There are four pairs of deep cerebellar nuclei the fastigial nucleus, the globose and emboliform nuclei together called the intermediate or interposed nucleus , and the lateral or dentate nucleus. Each belongs to a different functional part of the...

The amygdala connections

Anterior Commissure

One of the major differences between the amygdala and the other parts of the basal ganglia is that the amygdala is not a homogeneous nuclear structure but is composed of different component parts. These are not usually studied in an introductory course. The amygdala receives a variety of inputs from other parts of the brain, including the adjacent parahippocampal gyrus not illustrated . It receives olfactory input directly via the lateral olfactory stria, see Figure 79 and indirectly from the...

Horizontal view t2 mri radiograph

Optic Radiation

This radiograph is a view of the brain taken in the same plane, horizontally, closer to the plane of the brain section see Figure 27 , but a little higher than the previous radiograph. Parameters of the MRI have been adjusted to generate a T2-weighted image see explanation with Figure 3 . In this view, the CSF of the ventricles is white, while the bones of the skull are dark. This MRI shows the brain as if it were an anatomical specimen compare with the previous illustration there is a good...
