|Brain: Ventromedial nucleus|
|Ventromedial nucleus is 'VM', at center, in green.|
|Latin||nucleus ventromedialis hypothalami|
The ventromedial nucleus (sometimes referred to as the ventromedial hypothalamus) is a nucleus of the hypothalamus.
It has four subdivisions:
- anterior (VMHa)
- dorsomedial (VMHdm)
- ventrolateral (VMHvl)
- central (VMHc).
These subdivisions differ anatomically, neurochemically, and behaviorally.
The ventromedial nucleus is most commonly associated with satiety.
