The corpus striatum (striated body) is a term used in a few different ways:

  • It may also refer to both the basal ganglia and internal capsule collectively.
  • According to BrainInfo (see link in infobox) it is a part of the basal ganglia comprising the globus pallidus and striatum.

Details from Gray's anatomyEdit

The corpus striatum has received its name from the striped appearance which a section of its anterior part presents, in consequence of diverging white fibers being mixed with the gray substance which forms its chief mass.

A part of the corpus striatum is imbedded in the white substance of the hemisphere, and is therefore external to the ventricle; it is termed the extraventricular portion, or the lenticular nucleus.

The remainder, however, projects into the ventricle, and is named the intraventricular portion, or the caudate nucleus.
