The anterior nuclei of thalamus (or anterior nuclear group) are collection of nuclei at the rostral end of the dorsal thalamus.

Inputs and outputsEdit

They receive efferents from the mammillary bodies and subiculum, and project to the cingulate gyrus.


These nuclei are thought to play a role in the modulation of alertness and are involved in learning and memory.
