Ventral Tier

Thalamic nucleiFunction
Ventral anterior nucleusConnected to basal ganglia (corpus striatum), and motor areas of cortex.
Ventral anterior nucleusProjects to prefrontal cortex and premotor area.
Ventral lateral nucleusSimilar to ventral anterior, but also receives major input from cerebellum.
Ventral lateral nucleusProjects to motor (4) and premotor (6) regions.
Ventral posterior nucleus (VP)Divided into: Ventral posteromedial and Ventral posterolateral. Axons leaving these nuclei pass briefly through the posterior limb of internal capsule.
Ventral posteromedialReceives trigeminal and gustatory pathways.
Ventral posterolateralReceives ascending medial and spinal leminisci tracts.

Other thalamic nuclei

Question Answer
A small group of neurons within the internal medullary lamina. Connected to reticular formation, other thalamic nuclei, striatum, etc. = Believed to influence levels of consciousness.Intralaminar nucleus
A separate group of intralaminar nuclei involved in motor functions.Centromedian nucleus
A thin layer of cells separating the surface of the thalamus from the posterior limb of the internal capsule. Receives cortical inputs, sends axons to other thalamic nuclei. = Cortex may regulate thalamic activity through here.Reticular nucleus
