VL = Ventral lateral nucleus
VPL = Ventral posterolateral nucleus
VPM = Ventral posteromedial nucleus
LNG = Lateral nuclear group
PUL = Pulvinar
MTh = Metathalamus
LG = Lateral geniculate nucleus
MG = Medial geniculate nucleus

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.

FunctionEdit

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