Examples

  • It has been shown that the brain function pattern changes throughout the first year of life, with initial increases in the sensorimotor cortex, thalami, brain stem, and cerebellar vermis.

    Born to Believe

  • One of the most unusual findings of our scans was that while the nuns were resting (not praying), the activity in their thalami (there are actually two, one on the left and one on the right) was asymmetrical, with one side more active than the other.

    Born to Believe

  • One of these, a double mass, occupies a central position between the hemispheres, and is called the _optic thalami_.

  • From its posterior half are given off a number of small branches, the postero-medial ganglionic branches, which, with similar vessels from the posterior cerebral, pierce the posterior perforated substance and supply the medial surface of the thalami and the walls of the third ventricle.

    VI. The Arteries. 3a. 4. The Internal Carotid Artery

  • —The postero-medial ganglionic branches (Fig. 519) are a group of small arteries which arise at the commencement of the posterior cerebral artery: these, with similar branches from the posterior communicating, pierce the posterior perforated substance, and supply the medial surfaces of the thalami and the walls of the third ventricle.

    VI. The Arteries. 4. The Arteries of the Upper Extremity. a. The Subclavian Artery

  • At the junction of the roof and anterior wall of the ventricle, and situated between the thalami behind and the columns of the fornix in front, is the interventricular foramen (foramen of Monro) through which the third communicates with the lateral ventricles.

    IX. Neurology. 4c. The Fore-brain or Prosencephalon

  • —The third ventricle is a median cleft between the two thalami.

    IX. Neurology. 4c. The Fore-brain or Prosencephalon

  • The lateral portions of its lower surface rest upon the thalami, while its medial portion is in contact with the epithelial roof of the third ventricle.

    IX. Neurology. 4c. The Fore-brain or Prosencephalon

  • In front, the superior is separated from the medial surface by a salient margin, the tænia thalami, along which the epithelial lining of the third ventricle is reflected on to the under surface of the tela chorioidea.

    IX. Neurology. 4c. The Fore-brain or Prosencephalon

  • The under surface rests upon the tela chorioidea of the third ventricle, which separates it from the epithelial roof of that cavity, and from the medial portions of the upper surfaces of the thalami.

    IX. Neurology. 4c. The Fore-brain or Prosencephalon
