Flashcards in Forebrain Deck (12):
1

Mass Intermedia

Interthalamic adhesion connecting L and R thalami

2

4 Deep Structures of Telencephalon

Basal ganglia
Amygdala
Hippocampus
Olfactory bulb/tract

3

4 Structures of Basal Ganglia

Caudate
Putamen
Globus pallidus
Subthalamic nucleus

4

Striatum

Motor thing consisting of putamen and caudate

5

Notable Point about Olfactory Bulb/Tract

Only thing that doesn't have to go through thalamus to get to cortex

6

Internal Capsule

White matter fibers extending from cortex that go down to form peduncles and exit (carrying motor like corticospinal/pontine/bulbar). Have anterior and posterior that come together and form Y to go down

7

Septum Pellucidum

Fibrous layer that separates 2 lateral ventricles

8

Nucleus Accumbens

DA projection area where VTA projects to

9

2 Bulges at End of Thalamus

Geniculates

10

Hypothalamus

Densely packed nuclei that regulate homeostatic basal shit

11

2 Important Broadmann Areas

Precentral strip is 4 and postcentral 3

12

Broca's vs. Wernicke's Aphasia

Motor deficit vs. comprehension. Know what to say but difficult to get out vs. fluent nonsense. Frontal vs. temporal lobe
