The intralaminar nucleus is a nucleus of the thalamus that contains the following nuclei:

  • anterior (rostral) group
    • central medial nucleus
    • paracentral nucleus
    • central lateral nucleus
  • posterior (caudal) intralaminar group

Some sources also include a "central dorsal" nucleus.

It can be associated with progressive supranuclear palsy and Parkinson's disease.[1]
